The TRI-Lab, run by the Swearer Center for Public Service, creates collaborative projects amog students, faculty members and community partners, offering course credit and grants for students to strengthen University ties with the community and add a real-world aspect to classroom learning. The pilot lab, which launched this semester, focuses on human development from pre-conception to early childhood, studying education and family dynamics.

As the TRI-Lab’s inaugural project nears the end of its first semester, the pilot lab on childhood development is functioning as both a specific community engagement initiative and a forum for dialogue focused on improving and expanding the program into the future.
