Community Based Participatory Research to Strengthen Urban Neighborhoods

June 27 @ 8:30 am - June 30 @ 12:00 pm

Learn the history and principles of community-based participatory research as well as practical approaches for authentic collaboration.

Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is an orientation to research that begins with community informational and research interests and seeks to use the knowledge gained to inform action for community health improvements and social change. Although this approach to research is widely adopted in urban health and generally familiar to both community-based organizations and researchers, many still struggle with the lack of knowledge or experience with applying practical CBPR approaches to a pressing community health issue or potential research partnership. This course will review the history and principles of CBPR, and introduce participants to practical approaches and tools for equitable and authentic community-researcher collaboration in all phases of research: from the creation of research questions to study design, data collection, data analysis, and dissemination. Participants will also learn strategies for participatory grant-writing, budgeting, and opportunities for workforce development and capacity building for community residents and leaders in research. This course is open to researchers and community-based organizations.

Course Objectives:

  1. Learn about the history and principles of CBPR, and what distinguishes it from community-placed research.
  2. Understand the importance of and practical approaches for community-researcher collaboration in all phases of a research process.
  3. Apply CBPR principles to research partnership development and grant-seeking processes.
