NPCR Renamed the Kris Nelson Community-Based Research Program

December 14, 2011

Neighborhood Partnerships for Community Research (NPCR) has been renamed the Kris Nelson Community-Based Research Program in honor of NPCR’s longtime director, Kris Nelson, who passed away in June. Nelson created NPCR in 1993, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education. Since then, the program has supported engaged research projects in community organizations across the Twin Cities. The program will continue to focus on enhancing the capacity of community-based organizations in the Twin Cities by providing access to research and technical resources available at local academic institutions. Program guidelines and review criteria will remain the same. The program can be found online at http://www.cura.umn.edu/Nelson-Program.
