Funding for Collective Impact

The Ginsberg Center supported seventeen university-community partnerships though our Community Engagement Grants to support community-engaged faculty research and teaching.

We partnered with the Vice Provost for Global Engagement and Interdisciplinary Academic Affairs, the Office of Research, and Poverty Solutions to offer a collaborative funding model encouraging -- and practicing -- collective action to increase our impact in service to the public good.

Overview of Projects

We invited teaching and research proposals focused on advancing equity and decreasing economic and racial disparities in Washtenaw County, Detroit, and other Southeast Michigan communities, especially in the areas of education, employment, and housing. We have funded 27 projects involving 58 university partners and 72 community partners from a number of schools (Education, Information, Medicine, Public Health, Ross School of Business, Social Work, and Taubman), including several multidisciplinary projects

We also partnered with the Center for Interprofessional Education to offer community engagement grants to support interprofessional education in the health sciences. These projects involved faculty from the Ann Arbor campus (Pharmacy & Nursing), as well as the Flint campus (Physical Therapy, Public Health, and Nursing).
