Preventing Graduate Student Heroic Suicide in Community-Based Research: A Tale of Two Committees
Franz, Nancy K.
Journal of Public Scholarship in Higher Education, v3 p111-127 2013
Graduate students are increasingly interested in community-based research and public scholarship. However, they often struggle to find faculty research mentors who fully understand or have been personally involved with this type of research and related scholarship. In fact, some graduate students are advised by graduate committee members to refrain from working with communities and community stakeholders. Graduate students also experience few opportunities to develop skills and knowledge for community-based scholarship. It is clear that graduate students interested in community-based research need tools to navigate these dynamics. This article proposes a research stakeholder advisory committee as a successful tool for graduate students with community-based scholarship aspirations.
