I’m proud to announce the Year of Community Research, a
resource-sharing campaign to improve practice of community research, concludes 2018 with the following accomplishments!

The most popular request among researchers was a research agreement template. To wrap up the year, we shared a free download and a video with tips on how to use it.

We shared four central lessons that emerged during a conversation between five researchers about working with non-academic community partners at the 103rd annual National Communication Association convention. Check out their lessons learned.
