Office of Community-Engaged Research (OCEnR)
Community-based participatory research is a partnered approach to research that equitably involves community members, organizational representatives, and academic researchers in all aspects of the research process. It enables all partners to contribute their expertise, with shared responsibility and ownership; it enhances the understanding of a given phenomenon; and, it integrates the knowledge gained with action to improve the health and well-being of community members, such as through interventions and policy change (Israel, Schulz, Parker, and Becker, 1998).
Our mission is to promote health equity for maternal and child health populations by supporting community-engaged research initiatives and advancing strong collaborative partnerships between community, academic, and policy entities.
