Policy Research Action Group




Founded in 1989, PRAG is a consortium of community-based and community-focused nonprofit organizations and urban universities which currently include Chicago State University, DePaul University, Loyola University of Chicago, National-Louis University, and University of Illinois, Chicago.

For nearly 15 years, PRAG has played a catalytic role that has helped change the research landscape and transform a relationship that was either adversarial or non-existent to one that is engaged and productive. Today, there are hundreds of community/university collaborations across the country, even around the world. Visitors from England, El Salvador, and even Australia, have come to Chicago to consult with PRAG about its approach.
