CCREC's Funding Partners

Additional institutional support has been provided by UCSC's Division of Social Sciences; Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research; Graduate Division; Departments of Anthropology, Computer Science, Education, Latin American & Latino Studies, and Sociology; and the School of Engineering.  

Our "Ethical Issues in Equity-Oriented Collaborative Community-Based Research" project has been supported by two major grants from the Spencer Foundation. 

CCREC's Community-Engaged Computing initiative has been supported by a National Science Foundation grant: "Developing a comprehensive regional approach to data set integration to support data-intensive research in education in Silicon Valley."

UC Commitment

The University of California, the world’s largest public research university, is well positioned to provide leadership for better understanding the systemic and deep-rooted issues affecting the state of California and to coordinate efforts at the social, political, and institutional levels that must be shifted to address them. CCREC, with its multi-campus structure and concentration of leading researchers, has the capacity to help the University of California respond on the community and systemic levels to the issues impacting the state, to shape the design of such responses, and to establish itself as the leader of innovative Engaged Research.
