Become A Partner

Get Started with ACT

Step 1: If your organization is not formally connected to ACT as an official Community Partner, the first step is to contact Kate Johnson, ACT’s Associate Director of Community Service. 

If you prefer, you may start by submitting the online New Community Partner Request form to request a partnership and we will be in touch soon. Be sure you review this Memorandum of Understanding to get a better understanding of how our partnership will work.

Step 2: We will contact you and set up a time to come and visit you at your organization.

Step 3: We will explore how to get your organization connected to the university and its resources in the way that best suits your needs
