About the Regional Conferences
A 2010 Twist on the CSU Statewide Conference on Community Based Research: 2 Regional Conferences!
From 2006-2008, the CSU Community-Based Research Conference provided an opportunity for faculty, staff, community partners and students from across the state to come together for two days, in one location to explore the opportunities and challenges of community-based research.
In 2010, at a time of tremendous economic and social hardship, including the reality that few conference participants had access to travel funds, a statewide conference was not seem feasible. Instead, two, one-day regional conference took place. These two regional conferences shared the same conference format: panel presentations, hands-on workshops, small group discussions, an interactive keynote, as well as networking opportunities. However, the research panel presentations and workshop topics differed by region.
The links below will provide you with information on the panel presentations, workshops, and other community-based research in which CSU campuses and community partners are engaged in throughout California.
