Engaged Communities Cohorts
Engaged Communities projects seek to co-create public goods based on community assets, needs and interests. EC projects are supported by EHN mini and sustaining Grants (EC grants). Project teams comprised of faculty, students, and community partners convene as cohorts four to five times a year to share resources, collectively problem-solve, align efforts, and provide mutual support.
