Beyond Service Learning: Building Research Capacity Among Undergraduate Students and Community ResidentsOffice of Community Partnerships Posters
AbstractHistorically, undergraduate students and community residents have been underutilized in research. Community-based Participatory Research (CBPR) allows for a bidirectional learning process that facilitates the training of both groups so that they can be future researchers who sustain research activities in the community. In this research, we present how a CBPR project has helped a group of undergraduate students from University of Massachusetts Boston and community residents from Springfield to transform their perceptions about community, research, and working together as a research team.
