Research Opportunities

University/Community Partnerships: Community-Based research Opportunities in Community Sustainability, Urban Ecology and Related Areas

Above: ES student Pete Mulroy tends to a garden in The Vineyard. Mulroy says he would like to use urban agriculture to teach youth broad environmental issues.

Working with neighborhood leaders and residents, and other community partners, students have an opportunity to work in a variety of areas that support implementation of neighborhood revitalization activities focused in the neighborhoods of the City of Rochester. Projects include assisting with urban agricultural initiatives, assessing regional food systems, social determinants of health, asset-mapping using Geographic Information Systems technology, and conducting community-based participatory research projects.

Professor: M. Ann Howard, JD
