Collaboratory Coffee Break: Evaluating Campus-Community Partnerships with the OCTA

Special Guest:  Dr. Steve Gavazzi, Professor, Department of Human Development and Family Science, The Ohio State University

How can institutions move from tracking their community partnerships to evaluating and strengthening them?  Collaboratory is excited to welcome Dr. Steve Gavazzi, whose most recent scholarship centers on the establishment and maintenance of healthy campus-community relationships.  His work on town-gown issues makes ample use of his marriage and family therapy background, and has given rise to the development of a typology that draws parallels between campus-community relationships and marriages.

During this webinar, Dr. Gavazzi will introduce the Optimal College Town Assessment (OCTA), which is designed to take the guesswork out of understanding town-gown relationships through direct measurement of campus and community members’ perceptions of one another.  We will share strategies for Collaboratory Administrators to think about how they might leverage their Collaboratory data to support the successful implementation of the OCTA and identify opportunities for alignment with key institutional goals.

    Stephen M. Gavazzi, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Human Sciences in the College of Education and Human Ecology at The Ohio State University. Dr. Gavazzi is a trained marriage and family therapist whose scholarship for the past thirty years has surrounded the impact that family dynamics have on adolescent development and behavior. Professor Gavazzi’s most recent scholarship centers on the establishment and maintenance of healthy campus-community relationships. His work on town-gown issues makes ample use of his marriage and family therapy background, and has given rise to the development of a typology described in his 2016 book — The Optimal Town-Gown Marriage — that draws parallels between campus-community relationships and marriages.
