Collaborators

We use the term Collaborators for those individuals who are funded annually by the project or are generously donating their time and expertise to guide and advise the research, education and outreach components of the project in all seven of our case study cities. These are distinguished from our Community Partners, which are organizations in each city that support our work and to which we have promised an open, two-way dialogue.
