The Center for Applied Community Research and Development works with public, governmental and non-profit agencies in many ways. Partnerships are developed for research projects that provide valuable information to the agencies, while also providing the basis for Binghamton University faculty to publish research results. These partnerships work at the organizational level, as well as at the individual level and help all partners evolve and mature.
