What is Community Based Research?

Posted by admin in News & Announcements | Comments Off

Community-Based Research has three basic principles:

  • CBR is a collaborative enterprise between researchers and community or constituency members.
  • CBR validates multiple sources of knowledge and promotes the use of multiple methods of discovery.
  • CBR has as its goal social action and social change for the purpose of achieving social justice.

(adapted from Strand et al., Community-Based Research and Higher Education. Jossey-Bass, 2003)
