Do you plan to conduct research during your undergraduate career here at Carolina? Are you interested in investigating a community need through that research? In this interactive workshop, Professor Beth Moracco will lead a discussion about what is involved in doing research with human subjects, the principles and methodologies of community-based and community-based participatory research, and the kinds of research questions for which these methodologies would be appropriate. Come ready to talk about your interests and to brainstorm how to turn them into undergraduate research projects.  Cosponsored by the Carolina Center for Public Service. Note: This workshop will count as a skills training for the Buckley Public Service Scholars program.
