What We Do

The PACT component of the larger research center is focused on community-engaged research. Under PACT, Penn State researchers work with various community members and organizations to both improve the cultural sensitivity and impact of the research and improve the lives of families in the greater Harrisburg area.

  • Our Community Advisory Board provides an opportunity for researchers to bring projects for development and feedback
  • PACT provides resources for community outreach and recruitment to Penn State faculty
  • The PACT Community Outreach Coordinator works with other Harrisburg organizations to provide feedback with their community advisory boards
