I conduct community-based research projects every
semester as part of my Communitiy Sociology course.
Currently, students have partnered with the Church Hill Free
Medical Clinic to conduct a patient satisfaction survey;
results will be used to support funding requests. Students
are also partnering with Coalition for Kids to evaluate its
after-school Tutoring Program. I have also recently received
funding to examine the youth culture of sports; specifically,
I and two graduate students are observing youth soccer games
to examine interactions between parents, coaches and players,
as well as how the idea of "toughness" and "appropriate"
behavior is conveyed.
