Step 1: Define the research question

Step 2: Identify a Faculty member

  • Do you have one already? If not, ACE can help you identify a faculty mentor.

Step 3: Find a Community Partner

  • All community partners for this program must be in the Capital Region.
  • If you do not have a partner, ACE can help connect you to an appropriate partner. Please check out a list of ACE partners.
