The Duke Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Community Engaged Research Initiative (CeRi) e-Library leverages existing local and national resources around community engaged research (CEnR). The e-Library equips both community-based organizations (CBOs) and researchers with training, videos, and other capacity-building tools for researchers and community partners to equitably and fully engage in CEnR. Through CEnR, CBOs and Universities can form mutually beneficial, equitable, robust, and collaborative partnerships to change and improve community and population health.
To be a national leader in facilitating equitable, authentic, and robust community-engaged research for community and population health improvement.
To promote community engaged research by building capacity, facilitating connections, and fostering authentic communication between academic and community partners to improve the health and healthcare of the community.
