We are excited to begin accepting applications for the Spring 2021 semester. Students may apply by Friday, November 13th to join any of the Action Lab projects below. Apply online, and read more details about each project below the form, at action-lab.org/apply/students.
- School Nutrition Project: Grow Hartford Youth Program asks for research aimed at improving food quality in Hartford public schools.
- Limitless Fitness Project: Oak Hill asks for help to improve the quality of life for Hartford residents with disabilities and chronic health conditions through access to adaptive fitness and sports.
- Syrian Refugee Project: Sawa Refugee Resettlement asks for an analysis of needs and resources for Syrian refugee families.
Students must be available to enroll in two 13-week Action Lab courses, beginning February 8:
- The remote LAAL 200 Action Research Methods in Hartford (meets on Monday afternoons, from 2-4:40 pm)
- A LAAL 201 Hartford Research Project team that will begin the semester remotely and then meet in-person at Trinity’s downtown campus at 10 Constitution Plaza starting in March, if pandemic conditions allow. (Students may opt to continue this hybrid course remotely.) LAAL 201 meets either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday afternoons, from 2-4:40 pm, or Tuesday or Wednesday evenings, around 6:15-8:45 pm.
Successful students will earn 2 Trinity credits, which is the equivalent of 6 Capital credits. Prospective students from Capital and Trinity are welcome to list up to 3 project preferences. The Action Lab will inform students if they have been matched to a project team by November 20, before pre-registration for the Spring 2021 semester.
Contact the Action Lab if you have questions about the application process.
