This handbook reviews two model processes for developing successful partnerships. Under the first model, the university's goal is to enhance or strengthen existing CDCs by providing board and staff training, leadership development, administrative support, and financial resources. However, CDCs do not exist in all communities, particularly those located near Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Hispanic-Serving Institutions. The second model shows colleges and universities in these areas how to develop their own CDCs as separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The appendix of the handbook provides detailed information on forming and incorporating a CDC, as well as the responsibilities of the CDC's Board of Directors.
