RCR Forum: Community-Engaged and Community-Partnered Research (GS717.13)

A graphic for the "RCR Forum: Community-Engaged and Community-Partnered Research (GS717.13)" event on October 14.

Engaging and partnering with community members and entities in research, sometimes in the form of research practice partnership, can be a powerful mechanism for ensuring research is appropriately situated within the context and utilized for social change. These concepts and processes are highly complex, and often quite challenging, both in theory and in practice. This session will introduce the meaning of “community-engaged research” and related terms, explore their relevance for both researchers and communities, and consider recommendations for enacting best practices. Part of the Community Engaged Scholarship@Duke series; sponsored by The Office of Durham and Community Affairs and the Social Science Research Institute. For more information, contact Jessica Sperling (Smokoski), Ph.D. <>
