The CSCCE Community Participation Model – A framework to describe member engagement and information flow in STEM communities

Woodley, Lou; Pratt, Katie

The CSCCE Community Participation Model describes four modes of member engagement that can occur within a community – CONVEY/CONSUME, CONTRIBUTE, COLLABORATE, and CO-CREATE - and one that can occur outside of it: CHAMPION. This guidebook is intended to help you use the model to inform your community member engagement strategy by answering a series of FAQs. 


The Center for Scientific Collaboration and Community Engagement (CSCCE) champions the importance of human infrastructure for effective collaboration in STEM. We provide training and support for the people who make scientific collaborations succeed at scale - and we also research the impact of these emerging roles.
