Community-Based Research (CBR) Fellowship Program
Five Seattle University faculty were recently selected to participate in the 2011-2012 Seattle University Youth Initiative CBR Fellowship Program.
Through this year-long program faculty will conduct research projects with community partners that will improve the quality of life of youth and families residing in the Youth Initiative neighborhood. Each Fellow will receive a $6,000 stipend and participate in a three day institute as well as additional workshops and planning sessions throughout the year. Jeffrey Anderson will facilitate the program in his new role as Program Director for Faculty Engagement and Assessment at the Center for Service and Community Engagement. The following faculty were selected to participate in the inaugural year of the program:
- Charisse Cowan Pitre, College of Education
- Le Xuan Hy, College of Arts and Sciences
- Sam Song, College of Education
- Laurie Stevahn, College of Education
- Marie Wong, College of Arts and Sciences
We wish to thank the Faculty Fellows selection committee for carefully reviewing the applications. The committee included Jeffrey Anderson (Education), Mako Fitts (Sociology), and Jacqueline Miller (Office of the Provost). Please join us in congratulating the five recipients of this important Fellowship.
We anticipate offering a new round of funding during the 2012-2013 academic year.
