Public Participation

Public participation is an increasingly important component of research design and methodologies, teaching and learning, and planning and policy making. For the Geography Department faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates, public participation is something we seek to practice in our own work, as well as a growing societal phenomenon that some of us explore in our research. Members of the Department are involved in public participation in many ways, including participatory action research, public scholarship, active learning pedagogies, community service learning, and research directly examining processes, technologies, and impacts of public participation in a range of social, political, and environmental contexts.
