2. Collaborative Project Partnership in the Health Sciences: A Community Service Learning Initiative

HSERC is currently seeking community partnerships in which interprofessional teams of health science students complete research and produce a resource relevant to a partner community group that promotes health in the community that they serve.

What is required of the Community Partner?

  • Define a project. Most often, the project will identify a gap in their existing resources, such as important information missing from their website, or a print resource that the partner would like to provide to their user group, such as a pamphlet.
  • Attend a class on January 24, 2012 to describe project (15 minutes maximum) and answer student questions.
  • Be available between the end of January and early March, 2012 to clarify project expectations and answer student questions.
  • Attend project presentations on March 6, 2012 and provide feedback on student work.
