Community Campus Partnerships in Health (CCPH) Awards


The Community-Campus Partnerships for Health Award recognizes exemplary partnerships between communities and higher educational institutions that build on each other's strengths to improve higher education, civic engagement, and the overall health of communities.

The intent of the CCPH Award is to highlight the power and potential of community-campus partnerships. Through the CCPH Award we seek to recognize community-campus partnerships that:

  • Others can aspire to.
  • Embody the CCPH principles.
  • Pursue multiple community-campus partnership strategies.
  • Involve a full range of partners.
  • Achieve significant outcomes that go beyond a process or a single event.


To be eligible, the applicant must be an established partnership involving one or more community partners and one or more higher education partners. By “community partner” we mean an individual, organization or agency that contributes to the partnership and is not a higher education partner.

By “higher education partner” we mean a community college, college, university or residency program (including affiliated administrators, faculty, staff and students) that contributes to the partnership.

Partnerships must nominate themselves and need not be members of CCPH. Partnerships that have applied in the past but did not receive the award or honorable mentions may re-submit. We welcome nominations from any country or nation. CCPH can only accept nominations in English. Partnerships that include past CCPH award or honorable mention recipients, current CCPH board members, and/or current CCPH employees are not eligible for the CCPH award.
