Good partnerships are key to building strong bonds between campuses and communities, but how do we make sure they’re healthy, balanced, and effective? This week on #CompactNationPod we discuss partnerships in principle and in practice. Emily shares a fascinating new study from Iowa Campus Compact about how nonprofits perceive higher education and learns more about University of Nebraska Omaha’s innovative Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center. Plus, Compact conference season continues as Andrew shares some great tidbits from the Eastern Region Campus Compact Conference.
