CSCCE is primarily concerned with the role of community engagement management within scientific teams, groups and communities – the human infrastructure for collaboration. Our research work focuses on better characterizing this role and its impacts.

We explore these topics via grant-funded research, as well as through the project teams of our Community Engagement Fellows and via our Visiting Scholars Program. 

The intention of our research work is to provide knowledge that can be practically applied to assist community managers, their organizations, funders, evaluators and others interested in this emerging role.
