"A Lot of Bang for the Buck"--Results of the COPC Impact Survey
Brabant, Margaret; Braid, Donald; Carriere, Armand
Metropolitan Universities, v23 n3 p41-60 Mar 2013
Respondents to our 2011 survey on the impact of Community Outreach Partnership Centers (COPC) grants administered by HUD between 1994 and 2005 reported deep and lasting impacts on their respective institutions. These grants affected institutional structures, embedded community engagement within institutional cultures and academic curricula, and helped build reciprocal relationships of trust with community-based partners. Vernacularly speaking, COPC grants got a lot of "bang for the buck."
