Center for Scientific Collaboration and Community Engagement

The Center for Scientific Collaboration and Community Engagement (CSCCE) released the remaining five tip sheets in their nine-part series on the stages of launching and running community champions programs.

The tip sheets were developed in collaboration with the CSCCE community champions programs working group this last spring and are presented in their recent blog. The blog revisits the first four tip sheets in the series and summarizes the whole collection of nine. They are an excellent resource if you are interested in mobilizing emerging leaders in their community.
