Community-Based Research and Evaluation (CBRE) Workshop Series Community-Based Research and Evaluation (CBRE)

University of Alberta

University of Alberta

Community-based research and evaluation (CBRE) is an approach to research and evaluation in which partners from many sectors collaborate for mutually beneficial outcomes. Partners—including but not limited to the community, university, and/or government—develop principles for working together, jointly determine the scale and scope of their projects, and contribute according to their diverse expertise, experiences, and interests. An overall goal of CBRE is to create, share, and mobilize knowledge in ways that can inform policy, practice, research, and evaluation.

The University of Alberta’s Community-Based Research and Evaluation (CBRE) Graduate Certificate explores concepts on CBRE, program planning and evaluation, and a variety of quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods, allowing students to gain experience with CBRE and to develop conceptual and methodological competencies increasingly in demand locally and globally.

This embedded program is designed as an additional credential for graduate students currently registered at the University of Alberta who would like to develop skills for participating in or lead community-based research and evaluation initiatives.
