SATRN is committed to operating with core values in mind, across all activities. These values were identified as part of our strategic planning process in Spring 2020, and reflect our commitment to true partnership among community and academic affiliates; the principles of diversity, equity, and respect; and prioritization of real-world impact.
Community Empowerment: Community entities are equal partners in research that is grounded in community needs, issues, and concerns.
Reciprocity: Two-way knowledge transfer and co-learning are needed for effective, equitable, enduring solutions.
Inclusiveness: SATRN aims to reflect and engage the diverse communities it serves in a safe, respectful environment.
Transdisciplinary Perspective: Appreciation and integration of different disciplines, from basic biology to population health, are needed to solve complex problems.
Solutions Orientation: Translational research points toward practical solutions to real world needs.
Equity: Solutions are needed that prioritize systems change to address disparities in services and outcomes, benefitting the health & well-being of all people and society.
