Collaborations California-Style: A Review of the California Academic Partnership Program.
Stoloff, David L.
The California Academic Partnership Program is examined in this paper. Information gathered through a review of internal and external program documentation is analyzed to develop principles for intervening successfully through cooperative efforts and for ensuring the institutionalization of collaborative programs. Reviewed are: (1) the history of the California Academic Partnership Program; (2) the implementation strategies used to promote collaboration by the 30 projects the program funded from 1984 through 1988; and (3) the program's evaluation and research findings on essential characteristics for effective school-university relationships. Characteristics that contribute to effective partnerships include establishing common goals, developing mutual trust and respect, providing sufficient time to develop relationships, recognizing different cycles, sharing responsibility, and developing crisp lines of communication.
