The Jim Walter Partnership Center, Tampa, FL | University of South Florida


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.
