Our Strategic Partners cohost training and are involved in planning, announcing, monitoring, evaluating and funding the Academy’s training services. They also recommend and support guest instructors and guest speakers of Academy-led training. Together, we develop curriculum and resources like instructional videos to support our teaching.
The Academy supports our partners' training programs by sharing training announcements in class, on our website, and on social media. We serve as guest instructors, presenters, and facilitators. We provide relevant results from training needs assessments and course evaluations to advance the field of partnership and community collaboration.
Community of Practice
Course alumni and participants are at the forefront of developing and supporting the community of practice for the emerging professional field of partnership management and stakeholder engagement. These individuals support outreach, instruction and curriculum development while helping to keep us in step with changes in agency authorities, practices, and initiatives.
