HCCP: CER/START Fellow (S9635X)

Summary, Scope, and Responsibilities

In conjunction with faculty and community partners, CBR Fellows develop a detailed research agenda and timeline appropriate to the mutually-defined need and interests of the community. Fellows will attend biweekly meetings with faculty (and where possible, community partners). At these meetings, the group will discuss assigned reading on theory, practice, ethics, and history of community-based research. These meetings will also provide current Fellows an opportunity to talk with past Fellows who have chosen to serve as CBR Peers. Fellows commit to various form of documentation (journals, field notes, and/or reflections, as well as research reports and products). Fellows commit to appropriated sharing of research results in useful venues (town meetings, agency staff retreats, policy documents, and newsletters). The CBR Fellows program spans a single semester or summer. Students doing year long theses should apply to participate in the fall semester and many serve as CBR Peers if they wish to remain involved in the spring.
