Center for Participatory Research

The University of New Mexico Center for Participatory Research (UNM-CPR) was established in 2009 within the Health Sciences Center (HSC). UNM-CPR partners with multiple UNM departments and centers: the Public Health Program (PHP), the Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Health Policy at UNM (RWJF), the HSC Office of Diversity (OfD) and the HSC Office of Community Health (OCH).

UNM-CPR supports networks of research with community partners addressing health inequities, through a participatory and partnered approach. UNM-CPR embraces the principles of the Public Health Program within DFCM's vision; the RWJF Center's efforts in community-engaged health policy research; the HSC Office of Diversity’s vision of inclusion of different collective narratives and world-views; and the HSC Office of Community Health's mission of coordinating HSC programs to improve health status in New Mexico.
