Armand Carriere, Visiting Fellow, New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE)

What does a professional life filled with creating, leading and supporting campus-community partnerships yield over time? Is the painstaking job of engaged scholarship a pragmatic and viable form of community and economic development or more just an idealistic quest characterized by good intentions rather than measurable outcomes? In this special session with Armand Carriere, the first Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for University Partnerships in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, participants will have an opportunity to learn from a career that was devoted to "collective impact" even before the term came into vogue. Mr. Carriere, who is currently a Visiting Fellow for Campus-Community Partnerships with the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE) at the University of Massachusetts-Boston, will share his reflections on his lessons learned over time. He will highlight in particular his experience as the founding Director of the Worcester, MA UniverCity Partnership, a unique collaboration among the Colleges of Worcester Consortium, the City of Worcester, and the business community. Following Mr. Carriere's remarks, participants will be challenged to explore how the insights shared might help inform their current and future partnership efforts.
