Are you a scholar/activist? Someone who is committed to working to promote social justice and at the same time interested in doing research? Action research provides a framework for combining these activities and the Action Research Center at UC provides a welcoming community for learning more about it.
Action research draws upon participative and reflective practices to engage communities as active partners in identifying and investigating issues with the goal of achieving positive social change. The work of the Action Research Center at UC draws upon a broad range of theoretical foundations and action research methodologies to address issues related to education, health care, and community development locally and globally.
