Our Goal: The Center seeks to increase the practice of community-based participatory research at CCNY.
What We Do: The Center provide CBPR grants, technical assistance, and training to CCNY faculty and their community-based research partners to further effective CBPR.

2. Public Scholarship
Public Scholarship is...
the use of academic research expertise to address immediate public problems and public-policy concerns. Public scholars disseminate their research findings in ways that are easily accessible to non-academic audiences.
The Center aims to make academic research and research findings more relevant and accessible to policy makers and the educated public.
What We Do:
The Center provides grants, writing workshops, and publication support to faculty who wish to bring their research to the attention of the public and policymakers.
