Research

Drawing on inter-disciplinary expertise, the CRC produces cutting edge research on critical dimensions of regional change, including civic engagement, economic development, environmental justice, regional equity, and youth health & well-being.

Collaboration

The CRC work is founded on the principle of collaboration, and the belief that regional change is catalyzed by diverse groups of individuals and organizations engaged in a process of mutual inquiry and action.

Innovation

Field-shaping research methods and data tools, such as socio-spatial mapping, multi-indicator indices of well-being and vulnerability and participatory action research provide unique contributions to scholarship and practices of regional change.
