Self-Assessment of Place-Based Systems Change Efforts

This assessment is designed to help community partnerships take a closer look at their areas of strength and areas where they can go deeper to effect place-based systems change. Though it draws from learning in cradle-to-career education, the assessment has broader application. It can be used to examine multi-sector partnerships and collective efforts in areas such as health, transportation, and economic development.
