Atlanta, GA – The Georgia State University (GSU) Community-Soil-Air-Water (CSAW) Research Initiative is proud to host a Summer 2012 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site, funded by The National Science Foundation Award #1156755. The REU Site: Addressing Social and Environmental Disparities through Community Geography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a multi-disciplinary program that will bring together 10 undergraduate students from around the country to Atlanta, Georgia for a 6-week intensive research program. With an explicit focus on community geography, university-community partnerships and participatory methodologies, the research training program is the first of its kind for undergraduates in the United States. Undergraduate researchers, working in one of three research tracks, will quantitatively and qualitatively examine neighborhood change, property markets, air and soil quality, urban green spaces, and neighborhood visioning in partnership with neighborhood residents and community groups.
This multi-disciplinary, undergraduate research opportunity is open to all students, regardless of physical ability. For more information or questions regarding accommodation, please contact the GSU REU program manager.
