Abstract

The recent awarding of a Promise Neighborhood Planning Grant to Rutgers University-Newark demonstrates how the institution's leadership has promoted a vision and mission that fosters an institutional climate supportive of community engagement. This paper discusses how Gray's ( 1989) partnership development framework and Kania and Kramer's (2011) conditions of collective success have been integrated to document and assess this transformative initiative in the city of Newark, New Jersey.
