Certificate in Participatory Research

The Graduate Certificate in Participatory Research (GCPR) is an interdisciplinary certificate program for graduate students at UNC Chapel Hill seeking training in the theoretical bases, rationale, methodologies, challenges, and motivations for carrying out research in equitable partnership with communities, instead of on communities.
