Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is a partnership approach to research that equitably involves community members, organization representatives, and academic researchers in all aspects of the research process.
This course was developed by the Detroit Urban Research Center and was originally released in 2009. Given its success as a foundational course, updates were made in 2017 for this new, web-based version.
Academic researchers from multiple fields, including public health, education, nursing, medicine, social work, urban planning; health and human service practitioners; and members of community-based organizations.

- Discuss qualitative and quantitative data collection methods and interpretation (4.2.6)
- Explain methods of dissemination and translation of research findings (4.6.8, 4.7.1, 4.7.5)
