Community Engaged Scholarship: Building Just Communities Through Asset-Oriented Research Related to Mental Health, Educational Equity, and Food Ecosystems

Presenters: Stacie Dow, Program Manager of Student & Faculty Engagement at the University Honors College at the University of Pittsburgh; Jasmin Perrier (’22) Psychology, Social Work, & Spanish; Sydney Kelley (’24) Economics and Political Science; Magdalena Mendez (’24) Nursing; Dylan Delapaz (’24) Finance and Business Information Systems; Caleb Shook (’24) Business Information Systems and Political Science; Amy Blanchard (’23) Engineering; Heather Phillips (’24) Nanotechnology, Physics, and Sustainability Certificate, Aparna Ramani (‘22) Natural Sciences & Sociology, Certificate in Global Health.

This presentation will be led by a cohort of undergraduates engaged in the Community Research Fellowship sponsored by the University Honors College. The seven fellows will provide a Pecha Kucha style presentation highlighting their research focused on various aspects related to: Black adolescent and transition-youth mental health, an educational equity program that offers challenging exposure to a college preparation opportunity for high school students who otherwise may not have access, and lastly, food ecosystems, insecurity, and sustainability within the Pittsburgh region. These projects explore the relationship between the topical areas and systemic racism and how to create just, equitable communities. Audience members will learn how an asset-oriented approach in community partnered work can lead to the recognition of social systems that affect communities and understand the potential that engaged scholarship (and the work of their community-based collaborators) has to address inequitable policies and/or systems that impact a variety of communities. These projects provide examples to the potential role undergraduate students can have in research and evaluation projects that can demonstrate building partnerships between the university and the community to create vibrant collaborative structures related to mental health, educational equity, and food ecosystems.
