This chapter describes how community-university collaboration is created
by the Chicago Civic Leadership Certificate Program (CCLCP), an
undergraduate program offered at the University of Illinois at Chicago
(UIC). In CCLCP, partners from community-based, not-for-profit organizations
mentor first- and second-year students who complete writing and
research projects that their partner organizations need. In effect, then,
CCLCP’s community partners function as co-teachers, collaborating with
university instructors to direct, monitor, and evaluate student work; this
teaching relationship builds on a deeper and more interesting collaboration:
the bilateral development of students’ community-based projects.
