Applications are closed for the 2021 CCTSI Colorado Immersion Training (CIT) in Community Engagement. CIT is held annually, applications typically open in March of each year. Check back in early 2022 for more information.

The Colorado Immersion Training (CIT) is a unique community-campus educational initiative that aims to introduce an expanded pool of researchers to community-based participatory research (CBPR) and community engagement. CIT supports a change in the research trajectory of junior faculty, early career researchers and doctoral students towards community engagement. CIT is a six-month program for researchers from all disciplines seeking new skills and knowledge in community engaged translational research.

  • Learn core principles of community-based participatory research and community engaged translational research.
  • Develop skills to engage community partners in research.
  • Spend time in a local Colorado community to learn first-hand about the community and begin relationship-building.

Who should apply?

CIT is for researchers from all health-related disciplines seeking new skills and knowledge in community engagement and CBPR. Junior faculty, early career researchers and doctoral students are encouraged to apply.
