Understanding the impact of collaborative activities that aim to produce reciprocal benefits for students, faculty and community partners.
Research in the area of community engagement aims to understand the impact of collaborative activities between faculty and students in the School of Interdisciplinary Science (SIS), and our local and global communities. SIS-led community engagement projects are designed with thoughtful collaboration among students, faculty, and community partners. Each project aims to generate learning and teaching environments so that everyone takes on the role of teacher and learner to ensure reciprocal impact. Some of our projects include:
Our faculty members use mixed methods to evaluate the impact of community engagement activities on undergraduate student learning and community members’ health behaviours and knowledge.
