COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IS INCREASINGLY becoming an integral part of research. "Communityengaged research" (CEnR) introduces new stakeholders as well as unique challenges to the protection of participants and the integrity of the research process. We-a group of representatives of CTSA-funded institutions and others who share expertise in research ethics and CEnR-have identified gaps in the literature regarding (1) ethical issues unique to CEnR; (2) the particular instructional needs of academic investigators, community research partners, and IRB members; and (3) best practices for teaching research ethics. This paper presents what we know, as well as what we still need to learn, in order to develop quality research ethics educational materials tailored to the full range of stakeholder groups in CEnR.
