Identifying Key Partners and Stakeholders in Community-Engaged Scholarship Projects

December 3, 2019


Making sure all key stakeholders are included in community-engaged partnership projects is a difficult but important task. A systematic methodology for identifying partners would help avoid this problem. The double rainbow model is a systematic approach designed to identify all potential partners that can contribute to or might be affected by the project. This model was introduced almost 30 years ago and has been tested, implemented, and found to be effective numerous times. Its development, theoretical bases, and several examples are provided here.
