Academic Partnerships

Ginsberg Center works with faculty, department chairs, administrators, academic and co-curricular program staff, and post-docs whose work at U-M engages with external communtiies. We refer to these university stakeholders as our 'academic partners'.

From faculty development programs to community partner matchmaking support, Ginsberg Center helps academic partners integrate equitable and sustainable community engagement practices into courses, research, programs, and university-community partnerships. Our extensive community partner network is rooted in Southeast Michigan, Washtenaw County, and metro Detroit and includes over 300 non-profits, grassroots organizations, schools and government agencies. We work across academic disciplines and with all of U-M's schools and colleges to help our academic partners connect their teaching, research, and scholarship to these local communities. 

Our work with faculty and other academic partners is generously supported by the Rosalie Ginsberg Fund for University Service and the Stuart A. Miller Endowed Fund for Research and Dissemination. We work in partnership with the Provost's Office, through the Vice Provost for Engaged Learning
