Celebrating an exceptional year of community-based research

TCRC students sharing their research projects at our annual Celebration of Community Research.

Over 75 students presented their community-based research projects to their peers, faculty, host organizations and other community members at our annual Celebration of Community Research on March 31, 2017. It was inspiring to see our students’ finished projects, and to learn about the potential their research has to make a positive impact in our community. Thanks and congratulations to all the participating students!
