1 Community Partnerships Strategic Plan Vision The Office of Community Partnerships (OCP), an office in the Chancellor s division of the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) will become a national leader in creating, developing, and deploying impactful community partnerships that advance its teaching and research mission while strengthening ties to a global community. Mission To proactively provide leadership to existing relationships and generate new partnerships that lead to the development of meaningful opportunities that successfully integrate university functions enabling highly productive, sustainable collaborations among industry, government and non-profit entities and interactions with faculty, staff and students. I. Statement of Need UNCW has supported a traditional, decentralized approach to community engagement which has maintained a range of relationships at all levels of the university. A need for a more centralized comprehensive and intentional approach has emerged. Because UNCW is uniquely positioned to make significant contributions to our community and corporate development, and because we each have significant impacts on each other, Community Partnerships is able to provide the responsive, holistic approach desired by industry, government and organizations while internally enabling other university stakeholders (i.e. student affairs, colleges, advancement, other services, etc.) to leverage resources, capabilities and assets through coordinated engagement, analytics and communications. II. Definition As defined by the Carnegie Foundation, community engagement describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in the context of a partnership. Partnerships developed for collaborative, beneficial relationships between UNCW and communities and corporations exhibit several of the following characteristics: a. Are tied to an external community or corporate organization(s). b. Focus on a community or corporate need or issue where UNCW takes a leading role in affecting change. c. Activities are of mutual benefit to the whole university and for the growth and development of the partner. d. Provides opportunities for faculty, staff and students to participate in impactful community- and/or corporate-based learning, research or service. e. Are usually formalized, and may have a contract or memorandum of agreement to specify the terms of operation. f. May be funded from a variety of sources including university funds. Some partnerships are unfunded and have only in-kind support. Community Partnerships Strategic Plan Office of the Chancellor Page 1 of 6

2 g. May be a fee for service or professional development training provided in support of a public or community organization. III. IV. Focus The purpose of the Community Partnerships organizational structure is to provide the university leadership as a means to strategically strengthen relationships with the global community through an improved approach that facilitates interactions between industry, government, the community and the university. We will: 1. Manage select strategic organizations to grow relationships in areas of community and corporate engagement; 2. Collaborate with faculty and staff and corporate and community representatives to communicate plans and goals for improved interactions; 3. Establish best practices and data infrastructure to develop plans and implement actions leading to the most successful outcomes; 4. Produce communications and marketing materials that guide the development of partnerships and benefit community and corporate representatives in organizational interactions. Assets and Organization Only through collaborative and communicative efforts of the divisions of UNCW will this plan be successful: Academic Affairs Advancement Athletics Business Affairs Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship CREST Research Park Information Technology Systems Sponsored Research and Graduate Studies Student Affairs University Relations Community and Corporate Engagement Traditionally, UNCW has incorporated a very active culture of community service and outreach, and our students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents and donors continue to build a strong relationship with constituents of the region. Similarly, corporate engagement activities are incorporated into aspects of UNCW aimed at enhancing development and economic services. Community Partnerships will advance the university s mission to engage the local and broader community in partnerships that promote learning, discovery and economic development. These may include (but are not limited to): research opportunities for faculty and students to find solutions for corporate, community and/or government challenges and to enhance business growth volunteer service, coordination and implementation for community development initiatives faculty and staff expertise shared through organizational training and skill development corporate and community program evaluation and assessment by faculty and students reciprocal mentorship of students, faculty and community and business leaders Community Partnerships Strategic Plan Office of the Chancellor Page 2 of 6

3 OCP will be a national leader in a model that strengthens key strategic internal and external relationships and identifies innovative new avenues of partnership in a comprehensive manner that spans across multiple disciplines. GOAL: Connect our corporate and community partners with the Journey of Learning, the Love of Place and the Power of Ideas and Innovation. Developing expectations will serve as the foundation for increasing the culture of community and corporate engagement among students, faculty and staff.

Initiate a Chancellor-level legacy within the community which elicits university-wide attention, support, collaboration and participation in activities that promote the betterment of humanity through citizenship, leadership and innovation. 3. Consult and coordinate with departmental teams in the development of engaged teaching and outreach opportunities that enhance each discipline 4. Develop a foundational structure intended to increase capacity and resource focus while engaging community and corporate partners effectively and efficiently, or simply, to enable UNCW to move at the speed of business.

5 3. The Council will partner with the Faculty Senate s Engagement & Outreach Committee to encourage cross discipline collaborations, consider assessment of partnerships and communicate successes 4. The Council will consider and recommend reporting methodologies and measures of success Analytics It is critically important to measure the community and economic engagement impact and demonstrate the relevant contribution UNCW makes to the economy, community growth, education and quality of life. To do this, the data infrastructure must be established to help us develop a current partner analysis that will lead to a partnership continuum. Goal 1: With Information Technology Systems, establish a set of metrics and data systems for accounting and assessing the broad range of engagement activities, tracking the engagement flow, analyzing organizations for interest intersections with the university and determining steps that lead to maximum potential. Develop an integrated project management system for university-wide engagement activities that will: 1. provide cross-platform access to data from current systems used for reporting and merge that data into usable information for community and corporate partner analysis; 2. Develop a database for the collection of an inventory of engaged scholarship and service across the disciplines; 3. Track the flow of partner engagement within university divisions with updates to new data 4. Identify indicators and review current and new data to assess the scale and scope of engagement initiatives to qualify and quantify new opportunities; 5. Work with the Office for Institutional Research and other appropriate units to identify places in which engagement reporting processes can be improved and enhanced; 6. Measure, revise, and test benchmarking tools Establish a set of metrics and data systems for the collection of reported engagement activities to measure impact, which can be leveraged for funding, policies, development and expansion. 1. Mine existing engagement and research data to document areas of impacts that are being measured as well as gaps in knowledge; 2. Establish a timeline for measuring specific impacts and trend outcomes of engagement to advance the understanding of corporate and community engagement; Communications Along with other media strategies already in place and being developed, communications and marketing materials that guide the development of partnerships will be important to share the university s partnership model and build recognition as one of the leading engaged universities.
