G.R.O.W. + L.I.F.T.

Written by Travis Salway

The G.R.O.W. + L.I.F.T. checklist is a communication tool for academic researchers to reflexively account for how their research is effectively serving the communities and community-based organizations they (want to) work with. It is meant to be used in conversations between and among:

  • Researchers and community-based organizations
  • Research trainees and supervisors
  • Research teams, e.g., gathered for the purposes of grant-writing or research planning

The checklist is intended to guide (but not resolve) difficult and possibly time-consuming conversations about things like goals, values, expectations, financial resources, language, power, and anti-oppression.
