The Jim Walter Partnership Center facilitates collaboration to connect the needs identified
by the community with the University resources and expertise through educational tutor/mentoring
support, training, and dissemination of knowledge to improve the quality of life for
regional and global partners.
JWPC was created in 2004 with a generous endowment and the on-going support of the
JWPC family. Today, the Jim Walter Partnership Center is a part of USFs Office of
Community Engagement and Partnerships.
The Jim Walter Partnership Center is a self-sustaining endowed center that derives
its support by developing partnerships with private, public, and non-profit community
partners. JWPC contributes uniquely to the University's community engagement mission
in that, historically, all initiatives, programs, and research are driven by the needs
of the community.
