Mission Statement

The Community Research Center's mission is to develop research skills and promote professional development among Keene State College students while helping to meet the research needs of non-profit and public agencies in the Monadnock Region. It primarily assists agencies with needs and program assessment, grant writing, and conducting local surveys, but is available to help in other research areas. The CRC seeks to strengthen community and campus relations through the services it provides for local agencies.


The Community Research Center (CRC) was created as a result of sociology students' desire to conduct hands-on research that benefits and enriches the local community. The goals of the CRC include the following:

  • Strengthen the community by assisting its non-profit and public agencies.
  • Build social capital in the region by establishing relationships between Keene State College and the community's non-profit and public agencies.
  • Collaborate with local agencies and organizations on community research projects.
  • Increase the resources available to agencies by providing assistance in writing grant proposals and compiling data.
  • Improve the effectiveness of agencies by assisting them in program assessment.
  • Provide educational tools and workshops related to survey research, grant writing, and evaluation.
  • Develop the research skills, professionalism, and a sense of civic responsibility among Keene State College students.
