The Office of Government and Community Relations (OGCR) manages the university's relationships with public officials and community stakeholders, advocates and advises on legislation that impacts the university and coordinates outreach with the Greater Cleveland community.In accordance with the Case Western Reserve University Strategic Plan (2008-13), Forward Thinking, the Office of Government and Community Relations is committed to strengthening its relationships with public officials and community stakeholders, increasing the visibility of the university throughout Ohio and nationally and increasing the resources for university initiatives.
The mission of the PRCHN is to foster partnerships within urban neighborhoods to develop, test and implement effective and sustainable strategies and interventions in preventing and reducing the burden of chronic disease. We do this by collaborating with neighborhood residents, leaders and community organizations in Greater Cleveland to address the significant environmental and lifestyle issues that serve as barriers to good health.Housed in the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, the PRCHN is embarking on research that's truly in collaboration with neighborhoods impacted by poverty and chronic health conditions. This is possible in part through partnerships with: city and county health organizations, the Network of Community Advisors (NOCA), and four other schools at Case.The Center was built on the Center for Health Promotion Research (CHPR), also housed at Case Western Reserve University. The CHPR was founded in 2000 and was led by the Director of the PRCHN, Elaine A. Borawski, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. In 2010 the CHPR was absorbed into the PRCHN, along with several of its signature projects. Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of its Prevention Research Centers (PRC) program, which is now entering its 26th year and involves 37 centers in total. The primary aim of the PRC Network is to reduce the rate of chronic disease in the most threatened populations across the U.S. Chronic diseases (such as heart disease, asthma, and diabetes) account for70% of all deaths and are responsible for 75% of the nation's skyrocketing healthcare costs, so this program reflects a critical societal concern (CDC, 2009. OMB, 2008). Due in part to the decline of industry in recent decades, Cleveland often ranks among the poorest and most unhealthy populations in the country (American Community Survey, 2004. CDC BRFSS, 2006).

The college years mark a time when students face new challenges and undergo significant personal and social changes that can affect their academic performance, career plans, personal lives or their relationships. Understanding and adjusting to these challenges and changes is not always easy, and students often seek help from others.

The office is staffed with psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors and doctoral level counseling trainees who specialize in helping students adjust to these changes and to college life in general.
