CCPH conferences are noted for their emphasis on inclusion, experiential learning and subsequent action. Outcomes of past CCPH conferences have included those at national and international levels, such as principles of good practice and policy recommendations, and those at community levels, including new connections, new ways of thinking, and relationships between communities and campuses that come closer to the principle-centered partnerships we are striving to achieve.

If you are not a CCPH member and want to receive notices about future CCPH conferences, including the call for conference proposals, sign up today for CCPH's monthly E-News.

Annual Awards

The CCPH Annual Award was established in 2002 to highlight the power and potential of community-campus partnerships as a strategy for health equity and social justice.   Each year, it recognizes exemplary partnerships between communities and academic institutions that are striving to achieve the systems and policy changes needed to overcome the root causes of health, social, environmental and economic inequalities. The award recognizes community-campus partnerships that reflect the CCPH principles.


Community-Based Participatory Research & Research Ethics

Institutional Review Boards were designed to protect the interests of individuals, but what about the interests of communities? Our Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) & Research Ethics Program seeks to address this issue through training, technical resources, and open dialogues between communities, academics, research ethics review boards, funders and other key stakeholders. From January through June 2007, CCPH and Tuskegee University's Bioethics Center hosted a 6-part educational conference call series on Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) and Research Ethics, which was intended to increase understanding of the role of IRBs and other mechanisms for assuring that human subjects research is ethical and appropriate - both at individual and community levels.

CCPH has established a Listserv on CBPR & Research Ethics to further the dialogue on these issues.


Community Partner Peer Mentoring & Advocacy

Partnerships between communities and higher educational institutions as a strategy for social change are gaining recognition and momentum. We believe that if true partnerships are to be achieved, community partners must harness their own experiences, lessons learned, and collective wisdom into a national, organized effort.

Our Community Partner Peer Mentoring & Advocacy page shares information about community partner forums and other CCPH activities designed to grow a national network of community partners that has a significant voice in decisions about research practice and policy.


Rewarding Community-Engaged Scholarship at Canadian Universities

The College of Social and Applied Human Sciences at the University of Guelph and Community-Campus Partnerships for Health are spearheading a national initiative that aims to change university policies and practices to better develop and reward community-engaged scholarship.  The initiative, "Rewarding Community-Engaged Scholarship: Towards the  Transformation of University Policies and Practices" will work with a cohort of Canadian universities that are committed to advancing CES and eager to collaborate with their peers in doing so.
