Research and Graduate Affairs Committee 

The Research and Graduate Affairs Committee (RGAC) will:

  1. Assess the landscape of community engagement in the Academy including models that work and opportunities for collaboration. Can we create a toolkit to help others develop scholarly projects in this area? Can we focus attention on wellness, health promotion and other aspects relevant to healthcare reform?
  2. Define scholarship of engagement and the relevant metrics for academic pharmacy. Suggest appropriate recognition of true community-engaged scholarship in the incentive systems of schools and colleges of pharmacy, particularly the promotion and tenure processes. 
  3. Identify potential funding opportunities for pharmacy in community-engaged scholarship emanating from the Affordable Care Act as well as other opportunities such as PCORI.
  4. Identify barriers and training opportunities for faculty, graduate students, and community partners to become involved in community-engaged research.
