Community Partnerships Playbook

How can technologists and scientists engage communities in a spirit of partnership, without extractive practices?

How can community organizations work with researchers in ways that benefit their communities and expand their capacity, rather than burdening their staff?

The Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy’s newest publication, the Community Partnerships Playbook, has some answers.

The Playbook is a new publication in collaboration with three community-based non-profit organizations: Detroit Justice Center, Detroit Disability Power, and We The People MI Action Fund.

This project was supported by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
