Community-Engaged Research

What is it?

Community engaged research (CEnR) is a collaborative process that teams researchers and community partners in a way that generates and disseminates new knowledge to strengthen the community and enhance the wellbeing of community members.  CEnR identifies the assets of all stakeholders and incorporates them in the design and conduct of the different phases of the research process.  The CCE is a central hub to which all faculty, staff, students, and community partners should feel engaged with and supported by in order to conduct community-engaged learning, projects, and research.
