The TRI-Lab at Brown is a new initiative that will bring together students, faculty and community practitioners to engage with a complex social issue and collaboratively develop, refine and test solutions to the issue. The heart of the Lab will be a year-long seminar in which participants explore the framework and context of the issue, creatively harness their multiple perspectives towards solutions, and find support for individual research. Prior to the seminar, Labs will sponsor conferences that connect the university and community around a social issue and cultivate interest. In the year following the seminar, Lab cohorts can apply for seed funding to continue to work together to build practice and knowledge around solutions.
In the pilot year, up to ten TRI-Lab student participants—Brown undergraduate seniors or master's level students—will receive a $3,000 stipend and course credit for participating, as well as funding for research/fieldwork over January break. They will co-lead the Lab seminar with faculty and practitioners and have access to internships or research assistantships this summer (2013).
