The Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service hosts this opportunity for GW faculty to connect in conversation on the subject of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR). Dr. Uriyoan Colon-Ramos, recipient of the 2017 Nashman Award for Engaged Research, will frame the conversation by presenting examples of her own research and describing her approach to conducting CBPR. The conversation to follow will invite others to consider or describe how the principles and values of CBPR intersect uniquely with their own work.
CBPR is a collaborative approach to research that promotes positive change through an equitable and reciprocal relationship between residents, community organizations and university researchers that is reflected in all levels of project design and dissemination. CBPR is a partnership between community and university investigators in which each group contributes their expertise and they share equal ownership of the process and products of research collaboration.
The Nashman Center's Conversations on Community-Engaged Scholarship at GW are designed for a faculty audience but open to all, including students, staff, and members of the community. Please RSVP here!
