PEER Program Welcomes Third Training Cohort
The Partners in Education, Evaluation, and Research (PEER) program begins training its third cohort this month. This is the program’s largest cohort of Fellows to date and introduces seven new sponsoring organizations. PEER is a 14-month, part-time mentored program designed to increase research partnership capacity in community organizations and facilitate academic/community research partnerships through the training of a selected staff member of that organization. Each PEER Fellow is matched with a mentor from his or her organization and a CWRU faculty mentor/advisor.
