About the Partnership

Thank you for visiting our site and for your interest in the Campus-Community Partnership.

The Mansfield Community-Campus Partnership is currently reviewing the committees structure and purpose.  As a result, there are no active committee meetings scheduled. 

The Partnership has been active through a workshop series which has provided an excellent forum to share information with Town Officials, Property Managers, Committee Members and other Community Leaders.

It is our hope to redefine the Partnership in 2016, so please stay tuned for more information.  

 

Mission

The mission of the Community-Campus Partnership is a collaborative, ongoing partnership between local residents, students and the University of Connecticut to improve the quality of life for all members of the community. Currently the group is developing short term strategies and long term goals for the partnership.
