Announcing the Fall 2018 Community Learning Research Fellows!

We are excited to announce the Fall 2018 Community Learning Research Fellows! These student fellows collaborate with Hartford-area community partners and Trinity faculty sponsors on semester long community-based research or creative projects. Yesterday, these seven fellows worked with faculty and staff at Trinity to refine their research questions and seek advice on the next steps of their research project. We extend a special thank you to Professor Laura Holt for teaching and guiding the fellows through the semester and helping them to tackle research questions that are useful to students, faculty, and community partners alike.
