Focus Group Research

The Division of Community Engagement seeks participants for a series of focus groups to find out how faculty are connected to the community and how the university can better support faculty work in the community.  We are conducting 13 focus groups, with 8 – 10 participants in each. If you volunteer, you will only participate in one focus group. We seek participants from the following ranks:

  • Lecturer faculty from all colleges
  • Tenured and untenured faculty from CHABSS, CoBA, COEHHS, CSM, Library
  • Past and present incentive grant recipients

Focus groups will take about 1 – 1.5 hours. They will be scheduled, as far as possible, to accommodate volunteers’ schedules.  Drinks and snacks will be provided!

To participate, please contact Dr. Jodie Lawston, Faculty Director of Community Engaged Scholarship, at  Please include your college and rank for placement in a focus group. Please also direct any questions to Jodie Lawston ( Focus groups will begin in November 2016 and be ongoing into Spring 2017.
