Split infinitives

I have a problem with split infinitives in the following example: “MAPP. is a planning model fashioned to bring intellectuals, capital and resources to collectively tackle prevalent issues of the community.”

Put the word "together" between "resources" and "to." Otherwise it looks good.

Jerry, 

 

The split infinitive you have is 'to tackle'.  It's not always incorrect to split an infinitive, but it's a good idea not to in academic writing.  Try moving the adverb, collectively, after 'tackle'.
