Community-Engaged Research (CEnR)

Community-Engaged Research (CEnR) centers around fostering collaborations with and among groups of people affiliated by geographic proximity, special interest, or similar situations with the goal of addressing issues that affect the wellbeing of the people within the group. It often involves partnerships and coalitions that help mobilize resources and influence systems, change relationships among partners, and serve as catalysts for changing policies, programs, and practices.

The Regulatory Foundations, Ethics, and Law program have developed resources to support community-engaged research.
