What is the Scholar-Activist Alliance?
The Scholar-Activist Alliance (SAA) is a new way to connect scholars, researchers and students with community groups' real needs, thus providing a path for academic research to have real-world impacts on peoples' lives. For example, a community group in Southern West Virginia may need a graduate student to study the organic compounds showing up in well water to better know the source and how to stop this drinking water contamination. A graduate student may be deciding on the subject of his or her thesis or dissertation, and wanting a way for that research to be more than theoretical. The Scholar-Activist Alliance can help both these goals.
Thank you to Heartwood for funding further improvement of the Scholar-Activist Alliance!
