Research to Practice Partnerships
Our Research to Practice Partnerships (RPP) allow professionals with shared interest in urban neighborhood, and rural village, communities to safely bring appropriate research resources, and trusted expertise to local economic and quality of life development. RPPs integrate experiences, trust, and expectations of all stakeholder into welcoming and affirming long-term community development programs that help protect against predatory agencies, financial entrapment, and chronic hopelessness.
RPP programs enable people with shared interests in local communities to manage transformation of their world at different stages of life, career, and vocation. These programs help people stay relevant, hopeful, and purposefully engaged in shaping policies, governance, economic, and quality of life development notwithstanding disparate situations in which they find themselves.
