Community-Engaged Research Interest Group (CEnRIG)

The Community Engagement and Outreach (CEO) Core initiated the Community-Engaged Research Interest Group (CEnRIG) in 2020 as a way to address the challenges and opportunities that comes with conducting community engaged research. Conducting community-engaged research can be difficult. Our CEnRIG meetings give us the opportunity discuss obstacles faced by community-engaged researchers and effective strategies to overcome these obstacles. The purpose of this group is to address important questions: What are the best methods researchers can use to engage partners and initiate partnerships? How can we overcome study participation barriers? What can researchers do to strengthen proposals? What resources are available to assist with study planning and initiation? And, finally, how do we advance science and community improvement in the most effective and efficient way?

If you’re an academic researcher or community research partner and interested in joining the CEnRIG, simply contact Community Engagement and Outreach coordinator Emily Frankel to join the conversation.
