Community Partners

Negotiations for the development of a host site for students in an agency may be initiated by either the agency host site or the School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2).

Collaborative initiatives between all three master’s degree programs at SP2 work to identify and engage host community partner sites with the capacity to offer learning opportunities for all three kinds of students, when possible, for an academic year, as well as conduct community engaged research.  These sites may also become specialized HUBs for professional education training offered to students and agency staff, working across disciplines with students, sharing resources, fostering collaboration among sites doing similar work, and identifying challenges and advocacy needs of community partners. HUBs will also be sites for community engaged research conducted in a collaborative model with the community partners, faculty, and students to address partner needs.
