Vision and Mission

The vision of the CISDR is to promote Indigenous community development through the support of community-based participatory research projects. The intention of CISDR is to help Indigenous scholars develop research projects central to the improvement of existential conditions and quality of life within their communities.

The mission of the CISDR is to create an innovative and inclusive space for supporting research, training, funding, and publishing opportunities for Indigenous scholars conducting CBPR research projects. Central to this strategy is the creation and sponsor of an Annual Indigenous Self-Determination Conference and the CISDR Journal.
