Working in partnership with the graduate programs of the School of Public Policy and Administration
(SPPA) and with other academic units across the University, the Center
for Community Research & Service employs
several graduate research assistants each academic year. CCRS helped
create the model of experiential education known as "The Delaware
Model" which empowers students, faculty and professionals to work closely together on project teams that address
real-world problems and policy issues. These experiences provide
students with knowledge and skills that enhance their classroom learning
and which also bring cutting edge practices and solutions to government
and nonprofit agencies.
Opportunities also exist for highly
qualified undergraduate students to work with CCRS faculty and staff
during the summer through SPPA's Public Policy Fellows Program.
