Community-based research projects are an integral part of the class experience in several urban studies courses. The research projects are woven into class curricula in such a manner that course materials are presented and taught through the different research opportunities.

Community-based research projects are projects  that have been requested by community members, often non-profit organizations, who may lack the knowledge, expertise, or time to engage in research.

Recent community-based research projects include:

  • A survey of all out-of-school-time providers in the City of San Antonio for the Mayor's office
  • An inventory and map of the business activity along a commercial corridor on the city's east side for San Antonio for Growth on the Eastside (SAGE)
  • An analysis and comparison of water consumption rates between residential, commercial, and industrial land uses in the City for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS)
  • Research assistants to the San Antonio Eastside Promise Neighborhood (included administering focus groups in the community, analyzing data, and preparing reports and presentations for the community).
