Description: For the William & Mary Scholars Undergraduate Research Experience, community-based
and participatory research methods were used to work with students in developing research questions and in collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data about their academic and personal experiences. This led to the development of academic and research advising
services, workshops, faculty education, and research funding to support underrepresented students.
