Research fostered by the UB 2020 Civic Engagement and Public Policy Research Initiative.
CEPP’s Research Fellowship program began as a pilot program in the spring of 2009 and became a staple feature of CEPP’s support for community-based research. The academic outcomes of CEPP’s research fellowships are as varied as the projects CEPP has funded, including exhibitions and documentaries as well as publications and presentations. In the sections below, organized by the year of fellowship, we present a first glimpse of the benefits of supporting community-based research used to study issues of social justice and public policy from our research fellows. The substantial output of our funded faculty underscores the benefits of having a group on campus fostering this type of interdisciplinary community engaged research.
