The Community Change Collaborative (CCC) examines the methods, frameworks, and forces shaping community development, approaches to community engagement, and how to build sustainable, cross-sectoral partnerships. Our interdisciplinary research interests range from the local to the international, applying a variety of qualitative and mixed methods approaches to connect theory and practice for the benefit of our graduate student and faculty members, community partners, practitioners, and researchers interested in community change. We meet weekly as a group to explore theories and methods critically, which often leads to lively, educational discussions that inform our professional and personal development.
