    The research scholar program has two tracks: Scholar-Practitioner and Community Health Practitioner training programs for students looking for research scholarship development.

    Scholar-Practitioner Training Program

    Training for graduate-level students in clinical programs (social work, counseling, marriage and family therapy, psychology) seeking advanced training in the practical application of scholarly knowledge and translational science. 


    Collective Training Model

    SPTs and CHPTs will work closely together as interdisciplinary team members in partnership to advance the Institute’s research and development program initiatives. Scholars are expected to disseminate findings through conferences, publications, and no traditional academic settings (i.e., churches, community forums, schools, and town hall meetings). 

    Scholars receive specialized training in social justice advocacy.


    Community Health Practitioner Program

    As a community-based practitioner,

    Dr. Ingram recognizes the dynamic interplay between research and community change thus, applies a social justice-oriented approach to community-based participatory research (CBPR).
