Much of this work occurs through experiential teaching and learning opportunities faculty develop with collaborating schools, businesses, and organizations; as well as university-level educational partnerships with similarly innovative and effective organizations like El Valor. As a Community Psychologist, I am able to participate in community service and develop community-based research opportunities for students to practice putting theory into action so that our communities may be better served by existing relevant literature and research.”
