The role of the OCE is to SUSTAIN relationships with our community partners year-round; even when there is no upcoming grant proposal that needs community engagement or an ongoing research project that requires it. We deliver programs on a quarterly basis for diverse racial/ethnic and geographic communities and provide support of activities delivered by both academic and community partners under the guidance of, and collaboration with our Community Advisory Board (CAB)
