CCREC partnerships and consultancies are tailored to specific projects, whether at the local, regional, state, national, or international levels. These projects generally emerge at the confluence of ongoing work across multiple networks.

Currently, CCREC is involved in three partnerships: one regional, the Silicon Valley Regional Data Trust; one national, URBAN – the Urban Research-Based Action Network; and one international – A SHARED Future.

CCREC is also involved in multiple partnerships with centers and programs on the University of California Santa Cruz campus that support the preparation of undergraduate and graduate students in equity-oriented collaborative community-based research. The UCSC Everett Program, the Labor Studies Center and the Blum Center on Poverty, Social Enterprise & Participatory Governance are co-conveners of the Summer Institutes.
