Community-Based Participatory Research

A key goal of the Jandon Center for Community Engagement (JCCE) is to provide more and better-coordinated support for faculty and students undertaking community-engaged work. In particular, we seek to create a research culture grounded in Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR).

CBPR (also referred to as "participatory action research" or "mutual inquiry") is considered a successful collaborative research model that stresses campus-community partnership and connects faculty from across the disciplines to concerns in the community (Israel et al, 1998, 2003; Minkler & Wallerstein, 2003; Reardon, 2003, 2006, 2008; Strand, et al., 2003).
