Students will be engaged in an Applied Research Project (ARP) process that includes the Applied Research course and two structured Applied Research Project courses. Students will have an active professional role in all phases of the applied research project including project planning and implementation, dissemination of results, assessing the quality of the applied project, and making future recommendations. Examples of projects include completing a needs assessment, developing a strategic plan to enhance a campus service, or developing a program that addresses a particular issue on campus. A primary goal of the ARP is to "give something back" that can be applied to a student affairs-related issue at your institution.
