Our Mission:

The Community Partnership Funding Board (CPFB), is a student-run board that seeks to foster student leadership and social responsibility by encouraging students to take action against social problems.  The CPFB assists students in developing grassroots community action projects and administers grants made possible by the Student Activities Fee via the Student Assembly.  

Funding is determined by project feasibility and compatibility with the Community Partnership Philosophy Statement.  An emphasis is placed on projects that mutually benefit the students and community.  

The project should involve student service learning opportunities and public service for the community.  Projects should have goals of continuation and sustainability.

Our Philosophy: 

  • Social Responsibility: Taking informed action to tackle social problems
  • Student Management: Augmenting student leadership, creativity, and energy
  • Partnership: Uniting students with community members
  • Education: Partnership for service learning
  • Evaluation: Thoughtfully assessing the project and its effectiveness
