The goal of the initiative is to produce new knowledge for the community that would be published in recognized scholarly journals. The Center plans to use a variety of incentives including research stipends, best paper awards and student research assistants to encourage interested faculty to conduct community-based research using service learning experiences.
In the meantime, due to submission deadlines, the Center is offering one (1) $500 research and travel stipend to a faculty whose paper is accepted for presentation at either of the civic engagement conferences below.
