Advancing Community Engaged Research and Practice in Public Affairs


Join us for a conversation that highlights the foundational commitments that public affairs researchers and practitioners have toward engaging communities in their work.  Meaningful engagement of those impacted by policy can offer essential community-based knowledge that can enhance policy development, implementation, and outcomes.  We will explore engagement approaches that can be deployed in public affairs education, in the ways that we conduct research, and in how public affairs practitioners serve others in their work.
