Community Engagement

How We Work

Information Box Group

1. Intake

Community partners submit a research request and provide us with details of the proposed project, including the purpose, audience, and timeline

2. Scoping

Research Shop staff meet with the community partner to refine a research question and identify learning opportunities for students

3. Recruitment

Research Shop staff recruit volunteers and match students with relevant experience with projects that interest them

4. Implementation

Student teams supervised by Research Shop staff carry out the research within one academic semester (Fall, Winter, Spring)

5. Deliverable

We create a 10-20 page plain-language report or other deliverable for the community partner that answers the research question
