Community-Based Research at St. John’s Bread and Life
Erin Lothes Biviano, Assistant Provost for Academic Affairs, Office of the Provost
The University’s unique relationship with St. John’s Bread and Life Soup Kitchen in Brooklyn provides the groundwork for effective, sustained community-based research and service-learning. These collaborations aim to increase students' understanding of poverty, engage them in constructive research, and participate in practical solutions. Community-based research engages University resources, in collaboration with community members, to generate knowledge that will address real problems and seek social justice. The stated needs of Bread and Life for research and service-learning that our poster will share represent current priorities of the staff at Bread and Life. Creativity and expertise are sought!
