Community Engaged Research Institute (CERI)

June 26 – 30, 2016

University of California, Santa Cruz
Please join UC Santa Cruz’s Center for Collaborative Research for an Equitable California (CCREC), Everett Program, Center for Labor Studies, and The Blum Center for a four day intensive Community Engaged Research Institute.

We will introduce graduate students, early career scholars, and community members to the foundations, ethics, methods, tools and democratic aspects of collaborative research.

Through seminars, roundtables, and hands-on workshops, participants will develop skills and knowledge to begin engaging in equity-oriented community-based collaborative research.  All sessions will be facilitated by experienced collaborative researchers (both university- and community-based).

The Institute will be highly participatory, rooted in case studies, and work with community partners.

Costs for the four day institute are tiered to facilitate a diverse group attending. Commuter rates, scholarship info, and full tuition schedule available on our website.  Costs include tuition, three meals per day, and lodging.
