The Program Director
is the Cary. C Boshamer Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her publications, including several books, edited volumes, and articles theorize a social practice approach to identity, and focus on social movements, activism, and local democracy. She is co-founder of the Center for Integrating Research and Action (CIRA) at UNC, and co-founder and Director of the Graduate Certificate in Participatory Research.
Fundamental to the Program are community experts who, in addition to their achievements, possess local knowledge and lived experience of the communities in which they live. To facilitate relationships with community experts, the Co-Director of the Program will identify and connect graduate students and community experts in their area, and ensures that the Board consider community perspectives in Certificate issues.

About the Certificate
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recently launched an interdisciplinary, pan-university Graduate Certificate in Participatory Research.
The Certificate is designed to certify completion of graduate level training in the theoretical bases, rationale, methodologies, challenges, and motivations for carrying out research in equitable partnership between host communities and researchers.
Students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate for Participatory Research Program (GCPR) complete a Core Course, Elective Courses, and a Practicum in Participatory Research in addition to attending required workshops.
The Core Course
The Core Course is a three-credit hour course. The Course will introduce students to the history of participatory research and explore a range of participatory research approaches.
The Elective Course will provide additional in-depth exposure to participatory research and methods, and is meant to enrich each student's specific interests in participatory methodologies and research.
Practicum in Participatory Research
The Practicum involves the student in a supervised, hands-on experience with participatory research.
1-Hour Required Course
The goal of this one-credit hour course is to make students aware of current debates within participatory research, build their ability to converse about approaches and issues, and help them integrate into the participatory network on the UNC campus.
Students are required to participate in
at least two (2) workshops
on some facet of participatory research.
