Diversity and Outreach

The NCDDR has organized NIDRR grantees to identify, examine, and discuss important issues regarding the involvement of under-represented groups in research studies, the utilization of research outcomes, and strategies for effective outreach, in a Community of Practice (COP). Communities of Practice are "groups of people who share a concern, a set of problems, a passion about a topic, and who deepen their knowledge and expertise in this area by interacting on an ongoing basis" (Wenger, McDermott, & Snyder, 2002, p. 4).
