We are very pleased to inform you that our joint UNESCO Chair on Community-based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education has been renewed by UNESCO for another period of four years until July 2020. UNESCO has acknowledged the positive evaluation of the activities of the Chair over the past four years, and very good results produced.
This has been possible with the active collaboration, support and encouragement of all of you during the past. As we embark on the next phase of our work, we look forward to your continued involvement and support to the activities of the Chair.
In the coming period, our work will especially focus on
- Building capacity for next generation of community-based researchers
- Promoting respectful community-university research partnerships
- Disseminating innovative approaches to deepen social responsibility of institutions of higher education from around the world
Our website—www.unescochair-cbrsr.org– will continue to be the main vehicle for sharing knowledge and results of our work, as well as promoting inter-network dialogues and conversations (like Big Tent).
Thanking you, and inviting you
Budd Hall & Rajesh Tandon
