CASC 3405 SL: Community Engaged Research Methodology and Project Design

This course will introduce students to the research methodologies, best practices, and principles associated with the continuum of community-based participatory research (CBPR) approaches in which stakeholders engage to meet community-identified interests. Students will be guided to ask questions and gather information to design a community-based research plan that is tailored to the context of one specific community partner, or centered around a specific, researchable community issue identified by partners and residents. As an alternative, students can also choose to collaborate with a specific community partner to design a campaign or advocacy project for the partner’s community programing. Prerequisite: CASC 3400 or Service Learning Director permission.
