The Community Research Cooperative: Methodologies for Research Justice research cluster brings together an interdisciplinary and intergenerational group of scholars from the U of I to address and explore theories and methods in community-engaged research for research justice. This cluster aims to bridge the campus-community divide by creating an inclusive network that includes leading Champaign County community organizations and an interdisciplinary and intergenerational group of scholars from the U of I to explore theories and methods in community-engaged research and data practice for research justice. By drawing together the experience and insight of an interdisciplinary scholars network with off-campus civic scholars and community leaders, and by inviting community leaders to guide conversations on how to best address local needs (perhaps more than ever needed, in the midst and aftermath of COVID-19’s impact on Champaign County’s vulnerable communities), we aim to create a vital space to address new and emerging debates around research practice and accountable data methods to further community-engaged research practice as research justice.
In 2021, the project received funding through the U of I Chancellor's Office Call to Action Research Program to Address Racism and Social Injustice. Read more.
