May 24th 10am-12pm
In an effort to provide increased Institute access for community partners, the 2011 International Institute on Partnerships (IIP) is employing an innovative, technology-enhanced session on Tuesday May 24th. The Portland State University (PSU) Institute participants will be connected through audio and visual electronic technology to participants located at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in Indiana. In real-time, PSU, UNCG, and IUPUI will collectively learn about and deconstruct a long-established, exemplary community-university partnership. During this interactive session, faculty, students, and community partners located at the three campuses will interface through dynamic technology-supported conversations that will have national and international consequences on research and practices associated with community-university partnerships.
May 23rd 5pm-8pm
The IIP team welcomes you to the 2011 Institute in typical Portland fashion-with great conversation and scrumptious eats! Get acquainted with this vibrant city by experiencing our distinctive Portland food scene. While enjoying delicious Peruvian tapas; sampling the diversity of food cart delicacies; eating fresh seafood along the river; or sipping local ale; connect with IIP participants and mingle with key presenters and facilitators in small, participant-centered dinner groups. Each group will be hosted by a local community-campus partner who will arrange transportation for their group- we will reach our dining destinations via cab, streetcar, on foot, or pedicab.
The conference sessions will be directed
