From Binghamton to Borneo: Engaged Learning Across Space and Time

Thursday, May 17th | 10:30-11:30am

Presentation by Shorna Allred, Ph.D.

Organized by CAPE: Cornell Association of Professors Emeriti, Southeast Asia Program

Community-based research interlinks university actors (faculty, researchers, students) with community actors from government, private sector, NGO, business, and Extension sectors.  Working together, universities and communities engage in co-researching and co-creating innovative and actionable research projects that address a community’s unique context, problems, and needs while benefitting local people and places.

Dr. Allred is the faculty director of the Global Citizenship and Sustainability program in Borneo and the Rust to Green Scholars program in Binghamton.  This talk will focus on the role of students in community-based research for resilience.  These programs expand the university-community knowledge network with the goal of fostering greater sustainability, resiliency, and prosperity in communities here in NYS and around the globe.  Students working on community-based research reap the benefits of working and learning alongside community members, contributing knowledge, and developing new skills and abilities in community development research and action.
