The Liberal Arts Action Lab is excited to announce that we are now accepting proposals for the Fall 2019 semester. The deadline to submit is February 27th, 2019.

Got an idea about how to strengthen Hartford? We can help research the problem and offer possible solutions. The Liberal Arts Action Lab invites Hartford community partners to submit a 3-paragraph proposal on a problem or question that you’d like help answering with a team of student and faculty researchers from Capital Community College and Trinity College. After review by the Action Lab, your proposal will publicly appear online to help us match you with interested faculty fellows and students. We broadly define community partners as neighborhood groups, non-profit organizations, government agencies, social entrepreneurs, etc. Must be available to meet with the team at least once a month (either Tues., Wed., or Thurs. afternoons, or Wed. evenings) at our downtown campus. We will contact you after the Hartford Resident Advisory Board prioritizes proposals in early March.

Need some help? Here are some questions asked by last semester’s community partners:

The first step toward solving any problem is to define it. Interested in submitting a proposal? Head to to submit your proposal. For more information, contact the Action Lab Director, Megan Brown, at
