Community involvement opportunities

2022 WSU Community-Engaged Research (CEnR) Symposium

In 2018, 2019, and 2020, the CEnR Symposium convened hundreds of community members, community-based organizations, as well as WSU faculty, staff, and students to highlight existing community-academic research partnerships, develop new partnerships, and provide opportunities to discuss the benefits and challenges of CEnR and strategies for conducting this work. 
This year, instead of one symposium, we are coordinating three mini-symposia with the objective of developing three new, long-term research and programming networks: 

Within each of these networks, health equity priority areas include, but are not limited to, cancer control, cardiovascular health, and mental health.  We envision each mini symposium including lightning talks from community stakeholders and researchers and interactive sessions to facilitate the development of a preliminary agenda that will guide the future work of the research networks.  Seed funding will be available to advance the work of each network. 

Are you interested in working with one of our planning committees? If so, please reach out to Alex Sass at for more information.
