Community Based Research Development Grants

USD is committed to academic excellence, the expansion of knowledge and the preparation of compassionate leaders. In line with the mission, vision, and strategic directions of the University, the Office of Undergraduate Research has partnered with the Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness and Social Action (CASA), the Changemaker Hub (Hub) and the Center for Inclusion and Diversity (CID) to support Community Based Research (CBR) projects.  In the 2015/2016 academic year two types of Community Based Research Development Grants (CBRDGs) will be available to faculty, administration and staff; a yearlong curricular development grant and a yearlong co-curricular* development grant. Both are designed to support faculty, administration and staff that are interested in incorporating research and undergraduates into their community relationships.
