Community Research

We answer questions that community partners want answered. We work closely with community partners to address the questions they care about and orient our work toward deliverables organizations can use.

Learn Through Service

Students learn and apply skills in the service of community clients. Our work is accountable to one another and our clients through the structure of courses and labs at the University of Virginia.

Students choose these courses and labs because they want to give back. Our collective work has resulted in $750,000 in grants to local nonprofits and actionable research adopted by community agencies.
