Community Sustainability Partnership Program

USF Partners with City of Dunedin


After a groundbreaking inaugural year with the City of Palmetto, USF has selected the City of Dunedin to be its next community partner for the Community Sustainability Partnership Program (CSPP, pronounced CUSP). The selection of Dunedin as the USF CSPP partner marks the launch of a year-long partnership during which students and faculty will work with community officials to complete projects of importance to the Dunedin community.

The campus-wide program will engage faculty and students in service-learning courses from a diversity of disciplines, such as architecture and community design, criminal justice, education, engineering, sustainability, urban planning and more. A complete list of projects is still being finalized, with initial ideas ranging from community engagement and outreach, an affordable housing strategic plan, historic preservation, and traffic corridor studies.

USF's Community Sustainability Partnership Program is a member of the Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities Network (EPIC-N). CSPP will be administered through the USF Office of Community Engagement and Partnerships.
