The Community-Campus Connector is an annual event that allows Nebraska faculty to network with campus- and community-based organizations and to explore opportunities for education and outreach partnerships.
This year’s Community-Campus Connector is 2-4 p.m. April 22 and will be held via Zoom. Participants must register by April 20.
The Connector, organized by the Office of Research and Economic Development, will focus on opportunities and best practices for establishing effective partnerships with groups serving a variety of youth and adult audiences. The agenda includes brief presentations from faculty with successful community partnerships, and networking with prospective partners during breakout room discussions.
Increasingly, public and private funders require grant applicants to demonstrate they have built strong outreach partnerships and collaborations that may lead to measurable impacts, including enhancements to teaching, learning and public understanding of scientific research.
The Community-Campus Connector is an excellent opportunity for faculty to learn about the unique missions of various local organizations, explore complementary interests and begin to discuss how they may collaborate to gain external funding. For more information, contact Jocelyn Bosley, research impact coordinator, or Nathan Meier, assistant vice chancellor for research.
