This course is designed for students who have completed BIOS 40202: Developmental Neuroscience and wish to deepen their Community-Engaged research experience and expand their Capstone work toward an in-depth Community-Engaged Research experience. This research experience will allow students to trial, revise and expand their BIOS 40202 Capstone, with the goal of developing sustainable, evidence-based programming for their community partner. Interested students should discuss this opportunity with their community partner, email Dr. Nancy Michael to request an application and submit their application directly to their community partner at least one week before registration begins. Community partners will communicate with Dr. Nancy Michael and interested student(s) to identify those selected for enrollment. Once selected, students are able to enroll for multiple, consecutive semesters and may use their community-engaged research experience to generate a thesis and/or senior capstone. Class time is set to Fridays 12-3PM, to allow for monthly community meetings at a time all registered students and community partners have set aside. However, please note, this course requires meetings to be held off campus and will require travel. The majority of student work and time will occur outside of classroom space and outside of listed times, arranging between the student and specific community partner.
