Sustainable Contributions of an Asset-Based Community-University Collaboration to the Local Public Good

University efforts to serve the public good fail sometimes because they perceive communities in deficit. In contrast, serving with an asset-based approach fosters sustainability by assuming community and university enhance each other. Our multi-year, grant-funded community-university partnerships empower high-need diverse communities through service learning, youth empowerment, and community-based participatory research.
