Expanding Community Partnerships Program

      All of the Community Partnership Programs at ETSU have followed the same program principles:

•  Move student learning to the community
•  Involve students, faculty and community in interdisciplinary teams
•  Use experiential “hands-on” learning methods      
•  Plan and conduct programs through partnerships with volunteer     community advisory boards that identify local or regional issues and     opportunities

The Community Learning System is built upon multiple projects and program relationships
