Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Center for Applied Community Research and Development?

The Center for Applied Community Research and Development (CACRD) – a research center founded, staffed and hosted by Binghamton University – connects the University and individuals and organizations seeking community-based research partnerships. The CACRD goal is to create symbiotic relationships where community organizations benefit from the University’s resources while providing fertile ground for publishable research.  The knowledge embodied in each group benefits the other for the greater good of all.

How can I participate in CACRD?

As a student, there are several ways in which you may participate in CACRD activities.  You may intern at a community organization, participate in a service learning project in one of your classes or even be funded by a graduate research assistantship.

How do I apply for a graduate research assistantship?

When specific assistantships are available because of grant-funded activity, they will be posted on the CACRD Student page. However, we will be happy to keep your resume on file. E-mail it to Pam Mischen ( with a cover letter that includes your research interests and your expected graduation date.
