The Children, Youth and Family Consortium (CYFC) leads a multidisciplinary,
multi-year, cohort-based, professional development program for five Twin
Cities campus faculty and research staff. The program includes two features:
1) an intensive and sustained “Learning Community” to increase capacity of
scholars to conduct genuine community-engaged research, explore professional
identity as a community-engaged scholar, provide feedback on ideas, discuss
interdisciplinary research opportunities, share findings, and build relationships
and potential collaborations; and 2) four years of funding ($17k-$25k/year) to
support the scholar in proposing, conducting and disseminating a research
project to generate new knowledge about CYFC’s focus on the intersection
of educational and health disparities and to apply that knowledge to the
work of practitioners and policy makers. This poster explores the potential
effective ingredients of the Scholars Program, as elucidated through ripple
effect mapping, that resulted in individual, institutional and community impact.
Implications for Extension education and program design are also highlighted.
