Democratizing Knowledge at UPRM

CHARDÓN 318 @ 6:30 p.m.
Our work is framed by an action research tradition, and uses qualitative and quantitative data. We seek to better understand the connection between low socio-economic status (SES) and access to higher education, specifically at UPRM, in order to generate multiple research and action-oriented projects.
This presentation provides an overview of our research and outreach activities, explores the combined use of qualitative and quantitative data from various disciplines, presents some results of our work in progress, and discusses some of the methodological implications of our model.
