As research oriented courses require a significant investment
of faculty time in developing research projects in collaboration with
community-based organizations, the Community-based Research Assistant Program
(CbR) provides faculty with the support of a student assistant. The program
seeks to support faculty as they build long term relationships with community
organizations, generate research questions and activities in collaboration with
community partners, and disseminate research findings in ways that benefit
communities and enrich scholarly discourse about social justice issues.
