Background: Established in 2008, the Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) supports authentic community-academic research partnerships between Chicagoland communities and Northwestern University that benefit the people being researched and improve health and equity. ARCC advocates for a collaborative approach to research that honors, is driven by, and shares power with communities, as local, cultural, and lived experience experts. ARCC is guided by our Community-Academic Steering Committee comprised of thirteen community-and faith-based organizations, two public agencies, and eleven Northwestern faculty and staff. ARCC is a program of the Center for Community Health serving Northwestern’s Institute for Public Health & Medicine (IPHAM) and the Northwestern University Clinical & Translational Science (NUCATS) Institute.
