Abstract:

This study examines a newly developed participatory community-building model designed to confront barriers that inhibit interactions between the university and our communities. Features of the model include community-building, grassroots leadership and global citizenship through service-oriented sponsored research proposals, collaborative teaching, and applied research initiatives. As a university initiative, the Community Research & Development Center (CRDC) is designed to engage faculty members in strengthening the communities within and external to the university. Recommendations of this study are that the university must concurrently address a complex range of both institutional and individual barriers for the model to be successful and to get faculty members to embrace advocacy research.
