I conduct community-based research projects every semester as part of my Community
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.
