The Practicum Project takes student teams into Arkansas communities, including the impoverished Mississippi River Delta, to foster community development and social change in areas such as economic development, environmental awareness, public education, youth leadership development and health improvement. This primary field service fosters teamwork and direct application of classroom skills.
Examples of project work includes but are not limited to:
- Designing and conducting surveys, interviews, and focus groups;
- Facilitating public discussions and/or building stakeholder coalitions;
- Conducting best practice research;
- Conducting needs assessments to identify problems; and recommend appropriate solutions.
