TRI-Lab: Teaching, Research, and Impact

The TRI-Lab Program is an initiative that brings together students, faculty, and community practitioners to engage with complex social issues and collaboratively develop, refine, and test solutions to these issues. Topics are selected based on faculty research priorities, student interest, and community need. Lab participants work together to inquire and learn, conduct research, and create positive social impact in Providence and Rhode Island.

The heart of each Lab is a seminar in which participants explore the framework and context of an issue and harness their multiple perspectives towards creative solutions. 

Current and past TRI-Labs include:
