Gateways: International Journal of Community Research and Engagement
Vol 4 (2011)
Gateways is pleased to publish its fourth volume, a special edition on the theme of ‘Sustaining community-university partnerships’. It is the result of a collaboration between Gateways and the University of Brighton Community University Partnership Programme (Cupp), and is guest edited by Professor Angie Hart and Simon Northmore of Cupp. Gathered together in this volume are articles from around the world, reflecting on projects and partnerships big and small, young and more established. The articles provide us with a wealth of detailed material and identify some important characteristics of sustainable community-university partnership working, often in the context of socioeconomic disadvantage. The commitment, creativity and ingenuity on display in these articles suggests that there are many reasons for optimism when reflecting on the sustainability of community-university partnerships.
