Faculty opportunities at the Centre for Community Partnerships

The Centre for Community Partnerships (CCP) builds community, enhances capacity and stewards partnerships for curricular and co-curricular community-engaged learning and research (CEL/R) initiatives at the University of Toronto.

We do so by:

  • supporting instructors across all campuses and disciplines as they develop CEL/R courses and scholarship
  • stewarding partnerships for grassroots, non-profit and public organizations who want to partner on CEL/R opportunities
  • expanding and increasing access to resources that enable faculty and staff to offer high-quality community-engaged learning and research opportunities
  • expanding opportunities and building student capacity for participating in community-engaged learning and research

At the CCP, we understand CEL to be distinguished according to four key characteristics. CEL is:

  • enabled through partnerships with communities or grassroots, non-profit or public organizations
  • responsive to community-defined priorities
  • rooted in reciprocity, where community partners and students all benefit from the engagement
  • asks students to undertake reflection to connect community engagement to defined learning objectives

Services and resources


The CCP’s activities are informed by a Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) of 12-14 faculty members who serve two-year terms (three years if co-chairing). FAC members offer the CCP feedback on faculty-facing programs, timely reports on issues in CEL and strategic advice on CCP initiatives. The FAC is complimented by the CCP’s Student Advisory Committee and Community Partner Advisory Committee.
