Convening stakeholders from the non-profit sector, government, and higher education, this conference seeks to cultivate opportunities for community-based research. It explores the navigation and analysis of diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) interests, the fostering of sustained resources and outcomes, long-term needs for community-research collaborations, and more. This two-part convening first provides an introduction to principles of community-research partnership and promising practices through a Midwest lens. Secondly, it engages participants in models, approaches, and practices of community-research partnerships through panels and roundtable discussions to facilitate and encourage opportunities for networking and sustained collaboration.
