Building Higher Education-Community Development Corporation Partnerships (January 1999, 76 p.)
This handbook reviews two model processes for developing
successful partnerships. Under the first model, the university's
goal is to enhance or strengthen existing CDCs by providing board and
staff training, leadership development, administrative support, and financial
resources. However, CDCs do not exist in all communities, particularly
those located near Historically Black Colleges and Universities and
Hispanic-Serving Institutions. The second model shows colleges and
universities in these areas how to develop their own CDCs as separate
501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The appendix of the handbook provides
detailed information on forming and incorporating a CDC, as well as the
responsibilities of the CDC's Board of Directors.
