Connecting Change-Makers: Community-Engaged Fellows Launch New Blog

By Katie Vega, Scholar Shop Program Coordinator

The Community-Engaged Fellows program experienced incredible growth and development this past academic year. Twelve undergraduate and graduate Fellows engaged in research and scholarship pertaining to their unique but intersecting issue areas of: Gender Equity; Access & Education; Built Environment; Gentrification; Immigration; Refugees; Urban Conservation, Ecology, and Sustainability; Health Disparities; Writing & the Public Good; Arts & Engagement; and Meeting Basic Needs. Each Fellow worked with Faculty Champion(s), CCESL staff, the campus community, and community partners to co-develop and implement plans to advance community-engaged work in their focus areas.

As the Program Coordinator, I have seen these Fellows take on challenges and work as a collective to better understand the complex systems that impact communities and their influence as student researchers. With special thanks to Mia Edwards and Grace Carson, I am proud to share the Fellow’s first set of blogs (on their new website) highlighting their research, scholarship, and experience in the program. Thanks to all the Fellows for their tenacity and openness in sharing their stories and passions with the larger community. I invite you to read all the blogs here, or click through individual posts below:
