Research with purpose.
Research with impact.
Community-Based Research (CBR) is a partnership of students, faculty and community members who collaboratively engage in research to inform solutions for a pressing community problem, identify avenues to effect social change or evaluate program impact.
The research project is community-informed, collaborative and action-oriented. The philosophy underpinning this approach is that the community members are the experts and solutions to a social issue should be informed by the persons affected by the issue.
