What does community based research look like? What would it mean for academic institutions, faculty and students to take leadership from community groups, and facilitate education and research in the interest of social change? How can we ensure that community groups will truly benefit from this research? This workshop is intended to:

1. Help community organizations learn how to build the research capacity of their organizations; and

2. Help students learn the basics of community-based research, particularly how to take direction from and be accountable to community organizations.

Workshop participants will learn about the mechanics of creating research proposals and frameworks as well as how to build in ethical and accountability measures. Students, faculty and community members are all welcome to join this interactive workshop.
