The session will focus on such things as: equitable partnerships; valuing and bringing academic and community knowledges, expertise, and capacity together; dealing with uneven power dynamics; the importance of research and outcomes driven by community identied needs; and the kinds of impact engaged research can have on public policy, the academy, and communities.

About the Series : The goal of the Policy 101 Workshop Series is to increase the impact and visibility of UIC scholars’ research. Policy 101 workshops provide UIC faculty and graduate students with focused training that increases their ability to participate in public policy conversations. Policy 101 workshops are taught by professionals and academics who are experts at translating academic research into policy-ready documents, policy presentations and civic engagement and will be offered bi-annually on a rotating basis.
