Formerly known as the CCTS Regional Community Engagement Consortium, the Southern Commonweal integrates community engagement efforts across the CCTS Partner Network, a region that includes Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. 

Team Engagement

Each CCTS Partner institution is represented on the Commonweal by a community member and an investigator who participate in quarterly meetings to help define common challenges, such as health disparities; share best practices; and align research, training, and outreach activities. 

Commonweal members meet quarterly; two meetings are virtual and two are face-to-face in central locations. Commonweal co-chairs attend monthly video conferences and provide bimonthly reviews of progress to the CCTS Partner Network Executive Council.
