The Institute for Community Research offers
a variety of resources for community residents, academics,
community-based organizations and others.
ICR disseminates information, creates
dialogue, showcases artists, and helps to create an
interactive space for you to be involved in discussing
research results and the issues our community partners
face, through Public
Programming, conferences, and other resources.
For example, our publications
provide detailed information about our programs, projects
and research results. We also offer some publications
for sale. For example, our participatory
action research curricula for girls and youth
provide a step-by-step guide in using participatory
action research as a leadership, empowerment and skill-building
tool. And the Ethnographer's
Toolkit is a series of books that takes you through
the multiple, complex steps of doing ethnographic research
in simple, reader-friendly language.

expanding and building upon this area of work!
