How It Works
Become a Partner
Interested in becoming our next community partner?
The goal of the Community Sustainability Partnership Program (CSPP) is to advance the livability and sustainability objectives of the community partner by engaging University faculty and students, through their coursework, in projects of strategic importance to the community.
Benefits of Participation
- Community partners receive a high return on investment with thousands of work-hours dedicated to high-priority projects in their communities.
- Community partners gain access to the depth and range of knowledge, innovation, and expertise at USF.
- Communities often gain positive media attention, resulting in a greater volume of visitors, tourists, and investors.
- A vast array of possibilities will be explored, which may enable the completion of projects whose feasibility would otherwise be limited due to staff capacity, time constraints, or budget limitations.
Become the next CSPP community partner!
Selection of the CSPP community partner involves a competitive application process that results in one partnership over the course of an academic year (August-May). Community partners will benefit from thousands of hours of innovative applied research conducted by students under faculty supervision over a broad range of disciplines.
