Community Scholars Program
Northwestern University’s Division of Public Health Practice and Program in Public Health Presents: The Community Scholars Program
The primary aim of the Community Scholars Program (CSP) is to provide capacity-building support via educational workshops for public health organizations. The CSP workshops cover a range of public health topics and were identified by the Program in Public Health (PPH) community partners through needs assessment activities conducted in 2020.
Since the launch of the CSP, two workshops have been hosted every fall, winter, and spring quarter. They are offered to community organizations and institutions that provide public health services. Workshop participants gain knowledge, skills, and resources that nurture their professional development and help their organizations flourish.
Special thanks to our community partners, former scholars, administrative staff and faculty for providing feedback and recommendations that informed program revisions.
The Community Scholars Program will be hosting two, four-week workshops exclusively for our community partners during the Fallof 2021. Courses will begin the week of September 9, 2021 and will be offered virtually. Registration will open August 11th and close September 3rd. The cost for each workshop is $25.
Participants will need access to:
- Microsoft Word and Google Suite
- Desktop/laptop with video conferencing capabilities
