Knowledge Center

The purpose of our Knowledge Center page is to share a snap-shot of the ICJW team’s work, along with helpful Miami University, College of Education, Health, and Society, and other resources associated with conducting work, that positively impacts the education, health, and well-being of others. By sharing this information, we also hope to provide models for similar initiatives focused on equitable and transformative research, teaching, and service. 

For questions about items highlighted on the ICJW’s Knowledge Center page, or if you would like to suggest additions for resources to include, please email Barbara Ribbler at ribblebk@MiamiOH.edu or call 513-529-0434.
