Community Engaged Research Conference

About the conference

On Nov. 8, students, staff, faculty, and community partners from across the state came together to discuss community engaged research, with both the number attending and overall engagement exceeding our goals.


A large turnout

Undergraduate and graduate students, community members, staff, faculty and administrators from across the state attended!

While we anticipated a small conference of 70 - 75, over 100 registered!

Conference attendees came from as far as IU-Northwest, IU-South Bend, IU-East and IU-Southeast, along with Ball State University and the University of Michigan.

Looking ahead to the future

These conversations are needed.

Those who attended the conference said it was an excellent use of their time, and they want more time dedicated to these in-depth and thought-provoking discussions about community engaged research and community based participatory research.

Future conference topics were suggested, including:

  • Addressing challenges with solutions

  • How to get started in community engagement

  • Identifying funding

  • Getting support from administration

Keep the conversation going

Don't lose the momentum.

More than a week after the conference, students, staff, faculty, and community partners were continuing to discuss the intriguing conversations from the conference.
