The University of Illinois has a long and rich tradition of community engagement locally, regionally, and internationally. An ongoing challenge for engagement projects has been effective communications between University and community partners, in part because these efforts often span several years. The academic calendar and one-semester student involvement further fragment long-term partnerships.
These project site pages have been created to ease communication across semesters and partnerships. These Prairienet pages are not meant to replace the main websites of the different organizations represented here. Instead, this site helps capture the dynamic communications and knowledge-sharing among University and community partners who are working on specific projects within community. We invite your participation! Please contact Martin Wolske (mwolske (at) illinois (dot) edu) if you have a University-community engagement project that would benefit from inclusion here.
