New York University College of Global Public Health has defined their work related to the Collaborative as taking three pathways:

  • Increasing external partnership engagement
  • Promotion of related research
  • Enhancement of an environment that supports diversity and equity

Current endeavors include:

  • Established STEM partnerships
  • Recently funded research to enhance community engagement
  • Establish research partnerships with community organizations
  • Enhancement of educational opportunities

“CGPH is committed to the Collaborative to Advance Equity through Research, an initiative to support research on women and girls of color, comprised of 55 member institutions, which together have pledged more than $75 milion dollars toward this effort. We are pleased to be a part of such an important and timely initiative.  A small group of our CGPH faculty who conduct research in these areas is working to bring together faculty across NYU’s campus to discuss their work and brainstorm on innovative ways to further collaborative efforts.  It has been immensely helpful to draw upon the experience and expertise of those Collaborative members who have already engaged in this process.”
