Research output: Book/ReportBook - edited

Abstract

This important contribution to the literature on university relations with the wider community explains and describes best practice for a new model of working characterised by mutuality, reciprocity, shared risk and genuine exchange. All the chapters are co-written by community partners and researchers, giving unique perspectives into the problems and rewards of partnership. It advises on ways to generate relevant knowledge and apply scholarship to practice, and deals with universities' role in relation to business and to community organisations. Loaded with theoretical and practical insights, this is a good practice guide and a community practitioner text. 'Required reading for anyone who is interested in participating in, or learning about, a true community-university partnership...' (Michaela Hynie, York University, Toronto).
