Achieving Collective Impact: Reflections on Ten Years of the University of Georgia Archway Partnership
Garber, Mel; Adams, Katherine R.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v21 n1 p6-29 2017
Collective impact is a model for achieving tangible change and improvement in communities through a series of well-defined parameters of collaboration. This article provides a 10-year reflection on the University of Georgia Archway Partnership, a university-community collaboration, in the context of the parameters of collective impact. Emphasis is placed on the backbone organization and the opportunity for universities to serve as backbone organizations. The outcomes achieved through the Archway Partnership support the principles of collective impact and demonstrate the viability of a new model that could facilitate university-community engagement for regional and land-grant universities.
