Well-Being of Citizens
Research in Community Health and Social Science (CHSS) at St. Clair College supports new programs, products, interventions, and services dedicated to reducing disparities through discovery, innovation, curriculum, advocacy, and community partnerships to better the health and overall well-being of citizens.
Projects in the CHSS address community challenges by collaborating with community members and local agencies to take collective action. St. Clair College is involved in several Social Innovation research projects with community and not-for-profit partners in intersecting areas such as homelessness, community development, education, and public safety.
Community Safety and Well-being
Research in Community Safety and Well-being is focused on community development, protection, and health by exploring multi-sectoral partnerships. Research projects in this area respond to emerging community issues/challenges and identify and champion innovative, evidence-based solutions through a lens rooted in Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
Research with Vulnerable Populations
Community-based Research with Vulnerable Populations collaborates with local partners to research and develop solutions to address challenges and systemic social issues contributing to marginalization, including but not limited to race, age, class and gender, using an asset-based approach.
