Description/Abstract

Community-based learning empowers students to actively engage with a community and creates unique research opportunities through that engagement. By combining applied research with real world involvement, students create integrated connections between these worlds, become more effective citizens in their communities, and learn valuable research skills including experience dealing with ethical dilemmas. In this session, we will discuss the value of communitybased research and present programs and activities that incorporate the community to varying degrees. We will also discuss some of the challenges associated with working with community partners and some effective strategies for overcoming those challenges.
