The Community Change Collaborative (CCC) convenes weekly meetings during the academic year. Interested graduate students, PhD candidates and faculty are invited to collaborate on community development projects, to explore theories, methods and approaches to community change and to share lessons learned from past programs and experiences. Members represent a variety of disciplines.

The Community Change Collaborative (CCC) facilitates conversations with visiting practitioners and Virginia Tech faculty who conduct research or projects focused on or in relation to community change. Visitors’ research and project areas span many disciplines.

The CCC works to promote public participation in local governance and the broader community. In line with VTIPG’s mission, we support communities in exploring and addressing social, economic, and environmental problems, in communicating across differences and in developing tools for inclusive engagement.
