This collection of case studies serves as an appendix to the report "Promising Practices for Community Partnerships: A Call to Support More Inclusive Approaches to Public Participation in Scientific Research," a report of a task force comprised of PPSR practitioners and researchers, science center administrators, and experts on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in Informal Science Education (ISE) settings. The report provides evidence-based recommendations for improving the cultural inclusiveness of PPSR projects and explores the possible role that science centers might play in this effort. A key component of the task force's efforts was the production of the case studies presented here. Collectively, the case studies provide a small but suggestive glimpse into the variety of roles and approaches that exist within the ongoing effort to make PPSR more inclusive to culturally diverse communities.
