The Action Research Center’s mission is to serve “as a focal point for educational and community-based participatory research efforts by scholars from across the University interested in exploring ways of making research more relevant in promoting social justice and in addressing critical problems and concerns both locally and globally.

We are now seeking faculty, students, staff, and community partners interested in joining us as members of the ARC. There is no membership fee required, just an interest in learning more about action research and a willingness to contribute to the Center’s mission.

Membership provides opportunities to:

  • participate in Center sponsored programs and workshops related to action research,
  • receive information about available grants, conferences, and publications, and
  • develop collaborative relationships with colleagues and partners across the university and with community partners.


If you’re interested in joining us, or in learning more about the Center, please contact our center director,
Miriam Raider-Roth.
