Campus Life and Student Success

Community-Based Research

The Stetson University Community-Based Research program facilitates collaboration between faculty, student and members of the community to plan and conduct research. This program has a strong focus on using student research skills to address social problems found in the local community. Students learn to apply the theories and methods they have mastered in the classroom to real problems in the community beyond Stetson University, while community partners gain access to the rich research resources offered by the university. The result is a powerful learning experience for students and faculty, as well as a valuable research product for community partners.

Primary CBR Contact

The primary contact for the Community-Based Research program is William Ball, Ph.D.
