What does mutually-benefi cial, Community-Based Research mean for researchers and community partners? What are barriers to its success? How can UNP provide information and tools to overcome barriers and help facilitate successful research partnerships? What options would be useful for UNP to consider for the future? To address these issues, university and community representatives experienced with collaborative Community-Based Research were invited to join the Community Research Collaborative (CRC). h ese individuals refl ected on the barriers to and benefi ts from Community-Based Research. h ey assessed what mechanisms would be helpful to that ensure future Community-Based Research partnerships can learn from past eff orts and provide mutual benefi t to community and university members. h ey identifi ed a variety of ways in which UNP could facilitate partnership initiation and development, as well as provide a variety of tools to support public scholarship
