Many examples of program impact have been reported from across the US and beyond. Partnership Awards are included in the Annual reports of several hosts. Here are some examples of the various types of impact reporting.
Included in the Michigan Campus Compact Annual Report
The Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Partnership Award for Campus-Community Collaboration, organized by Michigan Campus Compact, honors and recognizes exemplary collaborations, undertaken by a college or university in partnership with a community group, which address critical areas of public need. The award recipients receive $10,000 in support of their program, to be divided between their community partner and the campus. The award is named for President and Mrs. Carter as a tribute to their lifelong efforts to develop and support safe, healthy, and caring communities throughout the world. In public office and in their daily lives, they have consistently supported public improvement efforts based on cooperation, mutual learning, and shared responsibility. The purposes of the Carter Partnership Award are to:
- Honor a sustained institutional commitment that has resulted in tangible community impact.
- Provide recognition for outstanding campus-community partnerships in Michigan.
- Increase the number and the effectiveness of campus-community partnerships and promote college/university citizenship.
- Encourage cooperation among education, community, government, and business leaders on critical social and economic issues.
