COMMUNITY-ENGAGED RESEARCH

This page holds a collection of reports stemming from community-engaged research projects, including those involving undergraduate student researchers and non-profit partners. I have many to thank for the collaborations that made these projects possible, including the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance, Boulder Climbing Community, Washington Climbers Coalition, Access Fund, and Dr. Adrienne Cachelin, from the University of Utah's Environmental and Sustainability Studies.

This survey, conducted in collaboration with the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance, examined Wasatch area climbers' engagement with, and perspectives on, the SLCA's stewardship and advocacy efforts.

This survey, conducted in collaboration with the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance, examined the climbing backgrounds, concerns, and preferences regarding stewardship and resource management of Wasatch area climbers. Data from a total of 799 climbers were collected. I've used some of the data collected in this study in my research on collective action among climbers.

Healthy Options: Fruit and Vegetable Availability and Price

This project, involving Environmental & Sustainability Studies undergraduate researchers, examined the extent to which Salt Lake City residents living in lower-income neighborhoods have less access to healthy food options, and paid more for those they have quick access to, than those residing in high-income neighborhoods.

The Consumer Costs of Food Certification

This project, involving Environmental and Sustainability Studies undergraduate researchers, examined the financial and equity costs of food certifications through a study of loose-grain rice sold in grocery stores across Salt Lake City. It was the basis for an article coauthored with Dr. Adrienne Cachelin in the Journal of Consumer Affairs.
