About Us

What We Do

Research-Practice Partnerships (RPPs) are the foundation of our work. An RPP is a long-term mutually beneficial partnership that promotes the production and use of rigorous research about identified problems of practice. 

We are committed to:

  • Building trusting relationships with Paso del Norte partners by meeting regularly and maintaining clear and open lines of communication;
  • Collaboratively developing a research agenda that serves partners targeted priorities;
  • Bringing together COE researchers with partners to identify strategies that address target priorities; and
  • Communicating the lessons learned with stakeholders and other audiences in formats that best serve their needs.
