In addition to offering competitive fellowships for UB faculty researchers, CEPP supports and advances community-based research and scholarship by UB researchers by providing a forum for research presentations.

Examples include:

  • Hosting Research Presentations by our faculty Research Fellows and Community Scholars-in-Residence and CEPP Research Network Meetings
  • Organizing Research Workshops for faculty and graduate students to gain practical insights into research methods, best practices, challenges and opportunities for various types of community-based research
  • Promoting Grant-Related Workshops organized by the Office of Research Advancement.

In 2014-15, CEPP has organized a new series Research on Aging: People, Policy, and Practice in conjunction with the Institute for Person-Centered Care and the Institute for Innovation Aging Policy and Practice, UB School of Social Work.  This series of conversations on aging-related issues will be held on Thursday afternoons in the fall of 2014, and we will meet to hear about new and ongoing research, promising strategies, and opportunities for collaboration. This series is designed for researchers, service providers, community advocates and others.  These events will be held on October 2 featuring Diane Bessel, October 20 with Dr. Louanne Bakk, and November 20 with Dr. Bruce R. Troen (flyer with details here).
