PA 543 Creating Collaborative Communities

Collaboration is perceived as an important method for addressing complex community issues through alliances with other organizations in the nonprofit, for-profit, and government organizations. This course introduces students to the theory and practice of collaboration through in-class and "living" case studies in the community. Students will learn the success factors, barriers to, and preconditions of collaboration at the intraorganizational, interorganizational, and intersectoral levels. They will explore the potential for using collaboration in a variety of community settings.
