Portland State Research Week: May 3-10

Portland State University Research Week Presents: Community-Engaged Research Lunch

The current PSU Strategic Plan calls for extending our leadership in community engagement. The College of Urban & Public Affairs has created the Community Engagement Research Academy (CERA) as a home, mostly virtual, for the intellectual core of our community engagement work across the university and a way to create and share research about engagement practice and impact. To launch this effort, CERA began a Small Grants Program to explore what we are learning about civic and community engagement and its impact upon the quality of life in the community we serve and outcomes for our students and faculty who participate in community-based learning and research.

The final CERA session for this academic year will feature reports from the four teams that received grants from the CERA Small Grants program.

Telling the Stories: Capturing and Sharing the Impacts of the Learning Gardens Laboratory. Dr. Sybil Kelley, School of Education; Dr. Peter Chaille, Department of Public Administration; Dr. Anne Knepler, University Studies.

Student Community Based Learning Projects and Alumni Public Service Motivation, Planner Roles, and Career Satisfaction, submitted by Dr. Marisa Zapata, Assistant Professor, Urban Studies and Planning.
