Chicago Research Experience (CRE)

The Chicago Research Experience is an opportunity for students at DePaul to learn about social problems in Chicago through a community-based project. During the experience, students explore a social problem using qualitative research methods (e.g., observations, interviews, and discourse analysis). In addition to supporting a Chicago community organization, the experience allows students to become more competitive for research careers and the graduate school application process.
