How To Do Engaged Research: A Resource Page

There are different styles of engaged research, and the term has somewhat different meanings in different disciplinary traditions. Our Center recognizes and celebrates this pluralism; our goal is not to favor one particular way of doing engaged research.

However, we also want to be a resource for graduate students who are working to formulate a dissertation research topic. To accomplish that, we plan to post on this page a variety of materials on how to do engaged research as well as ideas about specific research topics that would be useful to pursue.

This is simply intended as a resource to help people formulate better engaged research projects. We welcome other submissions.
