The Latinx Research Scholars Program (LRSP) at Marquette University provides undergraduate students experience in community-engaged research and Latinx mental health within Milwaukee. LRSP scholars will receive mentorship, hands-on practice, professional development opportunities, and networking with community and academic partners. The overarching goal of the LRSP is to create a community of scholars who have research training and expertise that will allow them to be agents of change within their communities.
The Latinx Research Scholars Program (LRSP) held a virtual presentation of research by our inaugural cohort of undergraduate scholars. In collaboration with the United Community Center (UCC) and United Migrant Opportunity Services (UMOS) scholars implemented community-engaged research projects and shared their findings.
