Hi –

I am involved with a research project called: the Community-University Partnership Programme in South Africa that involves critically exploring Community Engagement at rurally –based universities. Over the last few days I have looked for ways of evaluating the different types of partnerships involved with these activities [the process of partnerships and the impacts – costs / benefits of partnerships] and am surprised by the relative lack of ideas out there.

Does anybody have useful links or ideas about ‘evaluating partnerships’?

With kind regards
