CBR Workshop: Why Engage in Community-Based Research
(Community Service)

Whether your interest in CBR is non-existent or well-developed, this workshop has been designed especially for you. Come and learn why faculty, staff and community partners venture into CBR projects and get hooked by its professional and personal benefits. You'll also have any opportunity to explore how CBR can practically and effectively be integrated into undergraduate course content - regardless of the academic discipline.

Dr. Long will also be available for individual consultations about your CBR projects or project ideas and questions.

To RSVP for the workshop and lunch or sign up for a consultation, email Ashley Cochrane by Friday, January 27. You are welcome to attend portions of the workshop, even if you cannot attend the whole workshop.

Our Presenter:

Dr. Joyce F. Long is a research analyst in Memorial Hospital-South Bend's Community Health Enhancement Department. She is part of a team that strengthens the impact of local initiatives on the long-term health of the community, broadly defined. As a former faculty member at the University of Notre Dame in the education, schooling, and society minor, she cofounded No Parent Left Behind, a locally implemented program that helps empower parents with skills and knowledge to academically support their children. In 2013 she adapted the methodology and content for parents of preschool children in Roma communities across Eastern Europe. She currently teaches those workshops in Slovakia and to Hispanic families in South Bend through her work with the Latino Task Force for Education. Her research interests include how interest develops, creativity, community-based research, and learning processes. Long's publications include journal articles and book chapters on motivation and parent engagement. She is the co-editor of Community-Based Research: Teaching for Community Impact (Stylus, 2016). She earned her PhD in social and cultural foundations with a specialization in educational psychology and curriculum at Ohio State University.
