This session will discuss key factors in sustaining a successful university-city partnership over a 15 year period. Perspectives will be provided from the City and from the University.

Achieving a mutually beneficial and transformative partnership between a university and a city government is challenging but rewarding. Sustaining the relationship then becomes the challenge given inevitable leadership and executive changes and economic and environmental factors. Most thriving partnerships also have both formal and informal interaction at many levels of the organization. These multiple points of contact and the decentralized nature of universities must be taken into account in any strategy to support the partnership.
