DePaul University - Center for Community Research
990 West Fullerton Avenue
The Center for Community Research was established at DePaul University to provide permanent, dedicated space for externally funded research projects and to house research projects of colleagues associated with our work from Psychology and related disciplines. We focus on applied research involving public policy issues involving a variety of health issues, including chronic fatigue syndrome, recovery homes for substance abusers, re-entry issues for people leaving jail and prison, and violence prevention in school. Our focus is on efforts to reduce stigma, empower citizens, and better understand the systemic and environmental barriers to full participation in community life.
