Research, Project, and Proposal Support

Food Equity Ideas Lab.

Would support for your next engaged research project be helpful? If so, contact CGHE. Our faculty affiliates and staff are experienced in coordinating events; managing projects; crafting effective communication materials; and facilitating interdisciplinary, collaborative projects and research, as well as co-produced knowledge in engaged research projects.

Our Services

We offer a range of services for the research, program activities, and proposal development of UB faculty (see samples below). Fees associated with these services vary based on complexity and duration of the project, and will be calculated after the party requesting them meets with CGHE leadership to discuss specific needs, timeframe, and other variables. 

Training for faculty, staff, and students

Preparing for culturally-informed international travel; practicing cultural humility; framing research as the coproduction of knowledge.

Community impact/engagement

Orienting and preparing faculty, staff, and students for community engagement; recruiting community partners; spearheading partnership development; planning, organizing, convening, and facilitating meetings.

Project management

Developing project milestones; monitoring and updating Gantt or PERT charts; coordinating project update meetings, including working with multiple calendars, arranging for space, and meeting facilitation; and other services determined by request. 

Communications to promote events, projects, and articles

Proposing, writing, and publishing communication materials to promote articles or events; developing news articles; providing social media “push” on FB, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn; preparing press kit bios, press releases, fact sheets, digital art, and contact sheet.

If you or your team would benefit from these services, please contact us at to set up a meeting to discuss your proposal.

Additional Support

  • Proposal Mentoring
    Are you developing global health or refugee health proposals that require demonstration of further impact? 
  • Apply for Travel Funds
    The Community for Global Health Equity (CGHE), supports faculty research that promotes the health and well-being of under-resourced populations by helping reduce the sources and effects of inequity. 
  • Request Graduate Assistant Support
    The Community for Global Health Equity Graduate Assistants (GA) are available to support faculty research. This support is limited and dependent on our GA availability as well as match between faculty needs and our GA skills, duration and percent effort required, and potential for advancing collaborative scholarship by the faculty member.
