Carlton, Erik L.; Whiting, Jason B.; Bradford, Kay; Dyk, Patricia Hyjer; Vail, Ann
Family Relations, v58 n1 p28-40 Feb 2009
This study explored university-community collaborations by examining the workings of 1 healthy marriage initiative. An ethnographic case study research strategy was used to study the process of this initiative, specifically looking at how participants worked through and overcame traditional university-community collaboration challenges. Data consist of qualitative interviews with key initiative collaborators. Findings are organized into a model that offers a new way of looking at university-community collaborations in light of challenge points to be addressed and either resolved or unresolved. The model provides implications for other collaborative efforts and outreach scholarship.
