As part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Community Engagement Scholarship Award, the Hennepin-University Partnership created a video about just some of the many successful collaborations the HUP has made with Hennepin County. The video was shown at the Engagement Scholarship Consortium Annual Conference, was part of the review process for the C. Peter Magrath Community Engagement Scholarship Award, and was shown at the Association of Public & Land-Grant Universities (APLU) Annual Meeting.
“The Hennepin-University Partnership is worthy of recognition because this innovation in connecting local government and academia creates a model that can be employed by other jurisdictions across the country. The HUP not only facilitates effective public policy making, but has also been highly productive to date. With more than 144 connections initiated under the umbrella of the Partnership, the value to the larger community is evident and the HUP will continue to be an invaluable resource for both institutions,” said Jan Callison, Hennepin County commissioner.
