This proposed session is will provide attendees with information about the processes and potential benefits of working in RPPs. In 2015, the Spencer Foundation made grants to support a cohort RPPs with a history of successfully conducting research. This session takes advantage of this community and will feature posters representing the diverse group of grantees. These partnerships represent the variety of RPPs represented in the above definition, and presenters will draw on their experiences to help attendees understand the processes, opportunities, and challenges of engaging in an effective RPP. The session will also feature two discussants with expertise in RPPs who will provide a broad perspective and depth of knowledge to bring together the seven partnerships represented in this session.
