Research Networks

What is a Research Network?

University-community research networks primarily do five things:

  1. Pursue work of mutual interest and value to multiple academic disciplines and community sectors
  2. Identify the best ways to attract faculty, staff, and community members to become involved in engagement
  3. Develop relationships with individuals and systems in communities and the university
  4. Apply participatory research principles and generate data of immediate relevance to all stakeholders
  5. Contribute to the scientific and community knowledge base
