ISR Presents:

Community Engaged Research: Reflections on MLK’s Legacy
January 27, 2021
2-3pm EST

Breanca Merritt is a Diversity Scholar at the University of Michigan and founding director of the Center for Research on Inclusion and Social Policy (CRISP) and clinical assistant professor in the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. In this role, she and her team produce and disseminate research to lay audiences about complex social issues and inequitable outcomes through policy briefs and multidisciplinary research experiences for students with community organizations. Dr. Merritt’s work aims to inform both local stakeholders and academic audiences. Her applied, community-engaged research analyzes local trends and evaluates programs related to social service provision, equitable access and experiences, and systemic sources of poverty. Her academic work assesses how legislation and organizational practices contribute to disparate outcomes, especially for racial/ethnic minorities. Topics addressed by these projects include housing and homelessness, family financial stability, and criminal justice, among others.
