Pitch In: Community Partnerships and the U
Senior Vice Presidents Dr. Reed and Dr. Good want to know how U pitch in!
Apply to present your 2017/18 University of Utah community partnership project HERE. Finalists will be chosen from the applicants to give a 3 minute “lightning pitch” on their partnership work to the SVPs at the “Pitch-In” event this February 11th from 4-6:30 PM in the Marriott Library’s Gould Auditorium. A total of $10,000 will be awarded to help continue great community engaged work.
Applications will be examined in the context of the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification: “Partnerships focus on collaborative interactions with community and related scholarship for the mutually beneficial exchange, exploration, and application of knowledge, information, and resources (research, capacity building, economic development, etc.)…Partnerships that meet the standards of community engagement are grounded in the qualities of reciprocity, mutual respect, shared authority, and co-creation of goals and outcomes.”
Join us and submit your project by January 25th. Finalists will be notified by February 1st and invited to pitch at the February 11th event.
