Research and community go hand in hand
We’re committed to facilitating and conducting research that addresses pressing community issues. And we believe the best way to do that is to involve the people of our communities in our research projects.
In order to do so, we use the community-engaged research framework. It’s a participatory approach to research and evaluation that allows those affected by the issue to have a say in how the project shapes up.
When the research project is finished, we share our results with the community, ensuring it contributes to social change and improved quality of life.
To continue the momentum for community-engaged research, we partnered with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research as well as schools across campus and created the Community Engaged Research Group or CERG.
