TRANSFORM- 2023 Summer Research Institute


TRANSFORM’s 2023 Summer Research Institute (SRI)
Tuesday, August 1 to Friday, August 4
Rochester, NY

Location: University of Rochester River Campus

The SRI experience nurtured co-learning and development of a feasible project in community-based research that facilitates a societal impact on preventing and reducing child abuse and neglect. We sought applicant teams who are passionate about preventing child abuse and neglect and engaging with their local, state, and national partners. The University of Minnesota partnered with Mt. Hope Family Center, the Laboratory of Interpersonal Violence, and the Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester, to convene national and internationally recognized experts in the field of child maltreatment to help SRI teams work on developing and refining proposals for potential pilot funding. We offered a competitive application process for seed money following the SRI.

The SRI teams were hosted at the Hilton Garden Inn at College Town in Rochester, NY, a quick walk to the University of Rochester River Campus. Daily programming took place at the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education and Human Development, located along the landmark Genesee River. The University of Rochester transforms ideas into enterprises that create value and make the world ever better.
