Transformative Consumer Research is a movement within the Association for Consumer Research community that seeks to encourage, support, and publicize research that benefits consumer welfare and quality of life for all beings affected by consumption across the world.
We have a number of subcommittees that help us to disseminate and connect our research to practitioners, fosters partnerships between academia, industry partner and policy makers, and create bridges between funding opportunities, funders and TCR researchers.

Get to Know Us
Engagements with industry partners and public policy makers, award winning articles and grant recipient projects are just some of the ways we make an impact in academia and society at large
TCR’s conferences offers researchers and practitioners an opportunity to engage in dialogue -- sharing knowledge, data, and perspectives. Together we can advance research, knowledge, practices, and actions that can improve consumer well-being.
