Community Partnered Research

Unlike the traditional research designed and led by academics, collaborative community research empowers UC faculty who work with community organizations and local residents. Community partnered research is a collaborative approach to research that equitably involves community members, organizational representatives, researchers, and others in all aspects of the research process. All partners contribute expertise and share in the decision-making. The aim of community partnered research is to increase knowledge and to integrate the knowledge gained with  policy or social change benefiting the community.
