Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) Toolkit✎
Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH)
Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) is a non-profit membership organisation that promotes health equity and social justice through partnerships between communities and academic institutions. The CCPH Toolkit includes a number of tools and databases that help advance community-campus partnerships and address common barriers and challenges.
The toolkit includes resources on:
- community-based participatory research
- community-engaged scholarship
- community–institutional partnerships
- research ethics
- anchor institutions
Among the most useful resources in the toolkit are:
- the evidence-based online curriculum, Developing and Sustaining Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Partnerships
- the Community-Engaged Scholarship (CES) Toolkit, which assists graduate students and faculty in carefully documenting their CES and producing strong portfolios for promotion and tenure
- the Online Database of Faculty Mentors and Portfolio Reviewers, designed for community-engaged faculty searching for faculty mentors, and for deans and department chairs searching for external experts to review faculty portfolios
- the CES4Health database, a unique online database of peer-reviewed products of community-engaged scholarship that are in forms other than journal articles
- the Faculty Toolkit for Service-Learning in Higher Education, designed to aid faculty in any discipline with planning, designing, implementing and evaluating service-learning programs.
The website’s resources are open to everybody. However, individual, student or organisational memberships are available; these provide access to an inclusive and responsive network of colleagues and substantial discounts on CCPH events, bibliography and training.
Because the portal contains a large compilation of information, it takes time to navigate throughout the website, and some resources listed in the Summary may not be easy to find. The time needed for application of any particular tool depends on the tool selected.
