Course in Developing Community University Partnerships

27/11/2014

The Community University Partnership Programme (Cupp) at the University of Brighton organizes a course in Developing Community University Partnerships from April 30 to September 15, 2015, adressed to those professionals that want to develop their skills in that field.

A five days intensive course with a six-months follow-up programme run by the Community University Partnership Programme (CUPP) at the University of Brighton (UB) will provide a historical and policy background and locate community-university engagement in a broader political context. It will also suggest a range of different models and examples of how this works in practice in different parts of the world. Through carefully matched individual support it enables participants to develop a programme or model for engagement in their own institution and to evaluate this with a group of peers online.

Since its creation, the CUPP at UB has always been involved in brokering and developing partnerships with local communities for the past eleven years. These partnerships are concerned with the exchange of knowledge and prioritise those that tackle disadvantage. The CUPP works by building links between local community groups and academics, students and support staff.
