CECIL pushes for institutional funding and support for community-engaged research and scholarship. We can help you with your research partnership with a community group.
The Faculty Learning Community on Community Engaged Research and Scholarship (CEnRS) conducts mutually beneficial research and scholarship with the community. We define it as collaborative and democratized knowledge creation that shifts traditional concepts of power.
This concept includes stakeholders who are closest to or most affected by issues, problems, programs, policies in the research process.
This work includes research being conducted in a community and research directed by a community, an approach that builds on equity, justice, and peace.
In this case, it’s oriented toward positive social change.
CEnRS also advocates for increased institutional funding and support for community-engaged research and scholarship.
