Community-University Partnership

Capacity Building

CUP research engages partners from the community, university, and/or government to share their voices, collaborate, and develop projects that support mutually beneficial outcomes. Each partner brings their own strengths to the process as we work collaboratively to develop principles for working together and determine the scale and scope of individual projects. By bringing partners together, we learn from each other and share challenges, insights, and knowledge and build each other’s capacity.

We also recognize the need for more formal capacity building opportunities for collaborative, interdisciplinary, sustainable knowledge creation, exchange, and application.
