Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will focus on the methods researchers and practitioners use in collaborating on research meant to address social problems in the Chicago area. Each speaker will discuss his/her methodological approach to working on urban research in Chicago and how that allowed him/her to inform changes in the city itself. In particular, speakers will address directing collaborative research efforts as heads of research centers, working with researchers to transform services for urban families experiencing domestic violence, and how research access was negotiated to Chicago’s homeless population to determine the impact of a housing-first pilot program. Comments will focus on promising approaches to collaborative action-oriented research that enable partnerships to flourish between urban communities, practitioners, service providers, and the researchers and how those relationships become central to doing the research effectively.
