The Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities (EPIC) framework is a unique, highly scaled university-community partnership program.
It takes advantage of the time and talent of universities to help communities accelerate and advance their own socially and environmentally forward-looking goals. Originally developed at the University of Oregon, there are now over 25 EPIC programs, demonstrating the ability of this model to be adapted for different university and community contexts.
The 6th Annual EPIC-N Conference and Workshop is the signature workshop and training conference, combining those seeking to start a new program with representatives from existing EPIC programs sharing their insights and strategies to continuously improve the effectiveness of the EPIC approach. For new participants, the goal of the workshop is to help them leave with tangible action items, if not the beginnings of an actual partnership itself.
