This volume addresses the special rewards and challenges in connecting undergraduate students with change oriented community-based projects and provides a roadmap for implementing CBR with undergraduates. It lays out a process for conducting CBR with students, dealing with issues such as developing and maintaining partnerships, developing research questions, collecting and analyzing data, and reporting findings. Guiding questions and practical tips are featured throughout. The final section describes how to develop and put in place the human and financial resources needed to implement CBR across the campus.
