Emory, Office of University Community Partnerships

Emory's Office of University Community Partnerships aims to facilitate the connection of community groups, organizations and agencies to the university's faculty, staff, and students. Its efforts have included developing a database of community organizations and its flagship Kenneth Cole Fellowship in Community Building and Social Change program. To date, Emory fellows have completed 17 collaborative community-building projects in the Atlanta area. Their work has helped change policies to encourage affordable housing and mixed-use, mixed-income development. Fellows have also helped launch a program to provide HIV/AIDS testing and prevention services to women of color; provided a blueprint for revitalizing two neighborhoods without displacing longtime residents; and helped establish a radio station connecting Somali-speaking African refugees in Atlanta.
