Community Change Collaborative

Virginia Tech

The Community Change Collaborative (CCC) of the Virginia Tech Institute for Policy and Governance (VT-IPG) examines the methods, frameworks, and forces shaping community development, approaches to community engagement, and how to build sustainable, cross-sectoral partnerships. Comprised of an interdisciplinary group of graduate students and faculty, the CCC partners with regional community stakeholders through community-based projects to develop and conduct community strategic positioning efforts that enhance their citizenry’s capacity to explore the opportunities and challenges of working across sectors of the political economy to achieve sustainable change. Workshop topics have focused on business incubators and social entrepreneurship, development of innovative lodging options, and improving non-profit governance and leadership capacity. The Collaborative provides opportunities for its members to facilitate team building and to engage in applied community-based research, while connecting community partners with the knowledge, technical capacity and support that only a major research university can provide. The CCC also hosts an established speaker andpodcast series highlighting the work of community change scholars and practitioners at multiple analytic scales, and meets regularly to discuss the implications of community change literature and case studies for members’ work. CCC members contribute to Community Change journal, a peer-reviewed, student-led open access online journal, as well as RE: Reflections and Explorations, a graduate student essay series hosted by VT-IPG.
