This essay explores Eastern Washington University's East Central Neighborhood Partnership Center project, which utilized coordinated community service-learning classes and internships to create a neighborhood revitalization plan in partnership with a neighborhood council and community-based organizations. The author explores the ways in which the long-term relationship between the university and neighborhood organizations effectively promoted community service-learning classes across disciplines and expanded community participation to address community needs and to build community empowerment.
