Welcome to Center for Community Research

Below is our 2018-2019 team. Our collaborative activities involve community members, undergraduates, graduate students and other Center staff. We focus on applied research involving public policy issues involving a variety of health issues, including chronic fatigue syndrome and myalgic encephalomyelitis, Oxford House recovery homes for people with substance user disorders, and violence prevention in school. Our focus is on efforts to reduce stigma, empower citizens, and better understand the systemic and environmental barriers to full participation in community life.
