This chapter looks across campus to describe the role campus partnerships beyond student affairs and academic affairs can play in creating successful LLCs. From working with HR and Title IX to campus police and facilities and dining, this chapter provides a checklist of offices to work with, advice for guiding these relationships, and samples from faculty handbooks. This chapter provides general guidelines that will help readers adjust to meet the needs, structure, and culture of their campus.

Discussion Questions

  • How does the culture at your institution or unit support collaboration? How does the culture discourage collaboration?
  • How do your programs or initiatives support the mission and goals of your institution?
  • In your current role, who are your current campus partners? Among your current partnerships, where does each partner fit in the Partnership Continuum? Where should they fit?
  • Think of a current program or initiative in your area. How could you involve more partners? How could you strengthen existing partnerships?
