CommUniverCity San Jose: A Partnership for Service and Learning
Unformatted Document Text:  CommUniverCity did. Residents could develop broad project priorities at a single workshop or faculty could simply take project proposals to the community organization for approval (and buy-in). Finding committed faculty and some sort of community partner is crucial. Add at least some level of administrative support from the university (a dean? a department chair or two?). Reach out to someone in city government: a mayor or city manager or district council representative. They will need to provide some staff support but it doesn’t have to be on the scale of San José’s SNI. Then reach out to potential partnering organizations. Ours include the school district and nonprofits that work on health and affordable housing. Like so much that we do, this can be done with the sweat equity of faculty members, but success is most likely with some staffing, including a part-time executive director and VISTAs or at least interns—but it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Let us know when you succeed. CommUniverCity San José would love to be part of a CommUniverCity network across the U.S.A.—and beyond.
