The 2017 Community-Engaged Research Summer Institute took place July 10-14 at the University of Southern Mississippi's Trent Lott Center in Hattiesburg, Miss. The institute had a maximum of 10 participants, allowing for a workshop/seminar type format, with presenter-participant discussion and interactive learning. Junior faculty members from all major Mississippi universities were encouraged to apply.

One-to- two institute participants were selected to submit a proposal to the MCCTR Pilot Projects Program.
