    Community-Engaged Research Fellows

    Drs. Britteny Howell (Division of Population Health Sciences) and Hattie Harvey (Psychology) are faculty co-facilitators for the Community-Engaged Research Fellows program. Launched in May 2020, this program is designed to increase community-engaged research at UAA by supporting faculty and promoting the exchange of ideas. Faculty applicants who are selected to participate in the year-long program attend a May Intensive session and monthly meetings that include brown bags on community-engaged methodologies, navigating the IRB, tips for publication, and periodic "Design Clinics." The CE Research Fellows Design Clinics (sometimes also called Design Studios) are evidence-based problem-solving sessions where the Fellows help each other refine their research questions or work their way through a "wicked problem" (Rittel & Webber, 1973) in their research.
