Title: Generating Social Change Through Community–Campus Collaboration
Author: Nichols, Naomi
Gaetz, Stephen
Phipps, David
Abstract: In this article, a qualitative case study approach was used to explore the changes that community–campus collaborations stimulate. The authors document the “processes of interaction” (Spaapen & van Drooge, 2011) through which collaborations seek to contribute to positive social change, highlighting the outputs, outcomes, and innovations that have resulted from these collaborative endeavors. This article focuses on improving efforts to track the changes or innovations that are influenced by community–campus interactions. Findings suggest that researchers should focus on the broad field of activity through which collaborations contribute to change. Specifically, there is utility in tracking the “processes of interaction” that extends beyond the initial site of collaboration into the communities where a partnership seeks to make change.
