Student-Faculty-Resident Planned Field Research for College Students. Final Report.
Wish, John R.
This document reports a four-year multidisciplinary pilot project in which students worked with low-income urban residents to investigate possible inequities in consumer prices and credit. This project integrated classroom learning and practical experience. During the first quarter of each school year, a core research study group was formed. Actual student participations was in the second and third quarters of each year, the second quarter being introductory; the third being full-time research. Students lived in center-city metropolitan areas during the third quarter and were in contact with the core group at least two days a week. Results indicate increased enrollments in the project and classes are now regularly listed in the University catalog. The project was concluded to be a desirable alternative and/or addition to classroom experience for some students. (Author/MJM)
