As mentioned before, this project preceded the Building Amidst Diversity project. The goal of this project was to enhance the capacity of the psychology profession to assist communities in addressing issues related to diversity. The project had three objectives: 1) to assemble a database of psychology literature and model programs that can assist communities in addressing issues related to diversity; 2) to assist two communities in the adoption and adaptation of model efforts to improve intergroup relations and to increase how diversity is valued; and 3) to disseminate the lessons learned and resources developed through this project to communities across the country, as well as to intermediary organizations, foundations, and government agencies whose mission is to assist communities in improving intergroup relations and promoting diversity. Community Science implemented the project on behalf of the American Psychological Association. Activities included: conducting research, facilitating workshops, helping communities adopt strategies, and conducting an evaluation of the project.

Let’s do some good work together.
