The Challenges of Agenda Conflict in Higher‐Education‐Community Research Partnerships: Views from the Community Side
Responding to both the proliferation of higher‐education‐community partnerships and the paucity of studies that report the perspective of the community partners in such relationships, we interviewed community leaders to learn about their motivations for and experiences of participating in higher‐education‐community research partnerships. The article reports community leaders’ assessments of the benefits and challenges of engaging in such partnerships, shares their advice for both community and university‐based actors considering involvement in such partnerships, and explores the larger institutional and structural issues that bedevil higher‐education‐community partnerships.
