Funding for Collective Impact
The Edward Ginsberg Center offers funding opportunities for community-engaged teaching and research. In partnership with multiple units on campus, we offer a collaborative funding model, encouraging -- and practicing -- collective action to increase our impact in service to the public good.
Focused on Community Priorities
We seek to engage faculty interested in advancing their scholarship while enhancing the capacity of social sector community partners and communities through substantial, reciprocal engagement. We encourage teaching and research proposals focused on advancing equity and decreasing economic and racial disparities in Washtenaw County, Detroit, and other Southeast Michigan communities.
