Universities have a civic responsibility to engage with communities to capacitate and develop for the purpose of health and wellbeing. Although service learning serves part of this purpose, there is an additional requirement which is beyond just service learning. The requirement is a partnership between universities and communities which promotes culture, values, human rights and ethics. This paper provides a brief overview of the partnership and highlights the role of both universities and communities in the partnership as well as the potential factors that could hinder or enhance the sustainability of the partnership regardless of the context.
