Join the Action Research Collective for Graduate Students

October 14, 2021

The Action Research Collective (ARC) is a space for graduate students from minoritized backgrounds (e.g., domestic Students of Color, LGBTQIA2S+ students, students with disabilities, first generation students, low-income students, student veterans, students with dependents, etc.) to confidently engage in critical scholarly inquiry while building a sense of belonging on campus through professional development opportunities, community-building activities, and small grant funding ($250 for students who are actively involved in the program).  

If you are a current Ball State graduate student and interested in developing your research skills within a community of other graduate students across disciplines, please consider joining the ARC team. Our current research project focuses on exploring the experiences of graduate students with marginalized identities (i.e., Students of Color, Students with Disabilities, and LGBTQ+ Students) using photovoice methodology in which participants take photos illustrating their realities. 

Our next meeting next is Wednesday, Oct. 27, 11:30 am-1:00 p.m. (EST) in the Multicultural Center's Multipurpose Room and via Zoom.
