The BU CTSI Community Engagement Program (CE Program) seeks to:
- Develop new and sustain existing community-academic partnerships;
- Expand community-engaged research capacity for organizations, neighborhoods, and systems and the people who live, work, and play within these contexts to advance health equity;
- Disseminate best practices for community-engaged research approaches.
The Principles of Community Engagement guide the CE Program’s underlying assumption that successful translational research will include the insights of groups experiencing health inequities, and the organizations and systems responsible for the social and economic trends that influence health inequities.
