My research focuses on volunteering, service learning, and student civic engagement. Past research projects have examined student attitudes towards service-learning courses at USM and nonprofit organizations’ experiences with student internships. My current project is a multi-year study examining the long term impact on students and communities of service learning and other civic engagement programs such as the Luckyday program here at USM. The research methodology includes surveys and focus groups. I will begin incorporating individual interviews and observational components as the study progresses. Students who are interested in these topic areas or methodologies are welcome to contact me.
