CCPH accomplishes its mission of promoting health equity and social justice by facilitating partnerships between communities and academic institutions. We have established 5 strategic pillars for performing our work:
CCPH is a recognized leader in authentic partnership development, service-learning, Community-Based Participatory Research methods, community engagement, and leadership development for academicians in promotion and tenure.
What good is the knowledge if it is not shared? It is imperative to share the knowledge that comes up from the community, generated through research activity. CCPH disseminates through the CCPH website, CES4Health, journal articles and more.
Health equity and social justice cannot be achieved by going it alone. They can only be achieved through collaborative efforts. We all need partners and lots of them in order to affect important changes. Our partners include communities, academicians, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, funders, public sector agencies, and private sector businesses.
CCPH provides training and technical assistance in partnership development, partnership evaluation, institutional change and other areas critical to successful partnerships between community and academic institutions, government agencies, community-based organizations and others developed for their specific needs and assets.
