The community engaged university: Developing an intergenerational network of leadership and mentoring
Nationally, the number of effective and student-centered resources, support structures, and college and career preparation opportunities available to at-risk students throughout their educational careers is declining (Corbett, Wilson and Williams, 2002). To address this problem, the Collegiate Achievement Mentoring Program (C.A.M.P.) at the University of Florida and University of North Florida along with the Diverse Leadership Mentoring Program (DLMP) at Florida State University were developed to create an intergenerational network of leaders to increase academic and professional outcomes for K-20 students. This chapter examines the significant role community engagement played in developing, implementing, expanding and improving upon these community leadership initiatives.
