The 12-member Preservation Council advises the Department of Economic and Community Development on historic preservation and works with the state Attorney General to prevent the “unreasonable destruction” of properties listed, or under consideration for listing, on the National Register of Historic Places.  In addition to the Preservation Council, Partridge is also a member of the board of the Connecticut Humanities Council. He is the faculty representative on the Capital Community College Foundation and Advisory Council.

Partridge established the Heritage project at Capital  in 2011 with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Emphasizing place-based learning, the Heritage project brings Hartford’s rich and diverse cultural institutions, landmarks, and neighborhoods to the college’s curriculum. Heritage courses make connections between course content and the city of Hartford in order to enhance learning and to increase  understanding of Connecticut’s capital city.
