Over the past decade, we’ve seen increasing interest in community-campus research partnerships from faculty, funders, local governments, students, and many other stakeholders. Unfortunately, our university systems are lagging behind. For example, incentives are often set up to discourage faculty from doing community-based research.
The CRC is advocating for the implementation of systems to support CBR, beginning with our own home institution of the University of Utah. We convened a large group of engaged scholars from across the institution, and drafted a five-point plan for supporting, valuing, and resourcing CBR.
Our proposals for the University of Utah are designed to align with the President’s goal of the U becoming a “top ten university with unsurpassed societal impact.” Our proposal includes:
