Logo for Applied Policy and Community Research Laboratory

 

The Applied Policy and Community Research Laboratory (APCRL) at the University of Mississippi seeks to utilize multi-disciplinary, multi-method, and community engaged research to improve the quality of development programming, domestically and abroad, and to inform policy related to community wellbeing. The unique blend of data analytics capabilities and community based research data makes the APCRL uniquely situated to accomplish both of these goals.

In 2019, the University of Mississippi Community Wellbeing Constellation recorded a series of community engagement podcasts.

Contact APCRL coordinator Anne Cafer at amcafer@olemiss.edu for more information.

You can support the Applied Policy and Community Research Laboratory’s work in Mississippi and the Delta region by donating to the Delta Directions Fund.

In 2020, the Applied Policy and Community Research Laboratory launched a new policy brief series, building on the Center’s combined strengths of community based work and population level data.

The first in the series is the APRCL Policy Brief on Midwifery in Mississippi. New briefs will appear each month. Check back soon!
