Overview of the Interdisciplinary Research Team
One faculty member who leads a team of ‘Research Associates’ to complete major areas of the study. This may also involve coordinating the writing of a grant to support second stage research. Ideally this researcher will publish through his or her personal research.
Community Representative who leads a team of community stakeholders in supporting research and advising the process.
Faculty and students who have expertise related to the study and will contribute in more restricted ways (GIS Mapping, advocacy/artwork, survey design, policy briefs, etc…)
Experts from outside of Siena and the community who are recruited to advise and help navigate specific areas of the research project (media, community voice, etc…)
Undergraduate and Post-graduate students who conduct research as part of capstones, theses, independent studies and programmatic requirements (with Project Leader/Project Experts).
Project Support Specialists
ACE Office and Community Partner admins, VISTAs and CETL Fellows who are in charge of coordinating the logistical details of the program. This includes MOU, meeting scheduling, event management, coordinating grant support, outreach, etc…
