Funded by the WT Grant Foundation (with additional support by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation) in its highly competitive Institutional Challenge Award, the goals of this work are aligned with our public mission and strategic plan to enhance UC Berkeley’s public impact of our research portfolio by support and elevating community-partnered scholarship and to reduce the individual burdens and barriers perceived and experienced by members of the campus community that are engaged in partnered research as well as the external community partners who work with us.
With support from the Academic Senate, the Vice Chancellor for Research Office (VCRO), and the Deans of Berkeley Public Health, Social Welfare, and the Graduate school of Education, we are working collaboratively with key stakeholders at Berkeley to generate immediate and sustainable support for community-partnered scholarship.
