About the Center
The Center for Community Collaboration (CCC) is housed within the Department of Psychology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). The Center is a university-community collaborative, created through several memoranda of understanding with the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Prevention and Health Promotion Administration (PHPA) beginning in 2006.
The CCC collaborates with agencies identified and recruited by PHPA within a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) framework. We work with agencies to improve their services for individuals at risk or suffering from HIV/AIDS with multiple diagnoses related to substance use and/or mental illness and other infectious diseases. Using the Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral and Treatment (SBIRT) integrated approach, we help identify programs’ CQI needs and provide relevant trainings to enhance their quality of care in these areas. For additional information, resources, materials, and research in these areas, please visit the additional resources page of our website.
The CCC is currently staffed by the Director, Carlo DiClemente, Ph.D.; Project Director, Reshma Roy, MPH; and Graduate Research Assistants.
