In community engaged scholarship (CES; Glossary), investigators collaborate with partners outside of the university (e.g. government and non-government agencies, community groups) to co-produce scholarship that advances knowledge and addresses questions of immediate relevance for action. Practitioner, policy-maker, and community member knowledge is explicitly valued, directly informing co-constructed research questions, design, and impact. Community engaged research that draws on the partnership and expertise of young people and other experts outside of Berkeley is especially important as we work to reverse youth inequalities and promote adolescent health and wellbeing.
