Centre for Community Partnerships


Welcome to the CCP!

The Centre for Community Partnerships was founded to develop, with community organizations, partnerships that are defined, sustainable and action-oriented for students on all three University of Toronto campuses.  These partnerships have a dual aim to build educational capacity within communities of the GTA and Peel regions, and to enhance and broaden student learning.  Through the establishment of academic and co-curricular service opportunities, students enhance their learning of the social, cultural, ethical, and political dimensions of civic life.
