Vision for Community Engagement through U-TuRN

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health

The vision of the ISU CCPH is to support and sustain mutually beneficial community partnerships. Students, faculty and staff want to be able to apply their work and to serve the local community. Local organizations, in turn, want to find ways to connect with expertise and support from the campus. We hope to bridge this gap and facilitate more effective and sustainable partnerships to enhance health and well-being in the community.  A conceptual vision linking the CCPH goals within the broader U-TuRN initiative is provided below:

***The CCPH vision programming is consistent with the ISU land grant heritage of directly serving the people of Iowa.  The programming is also positioned to help advance the vision of Iowa becoming the healthiest state.
