The editorial team is excited to release the first volume of CBR@CSUCI. The reports below represent just some of the breadth of CBR work conducted in the community. They range from quantitative analyses of health care issues in our county to qualitative interviews about mentoring in a foster youth facility; demographic analyses of counties throughout our state and roadmaps for community organizing close to home; they include campus projects as well, such as one designed to help the CCE to make service-learning more impactful.
This volume includes reports that have been completed at any time in the history of CSUCI; the earliest is from 2009, and the most recent from the current year. Given the challenges of getting the first volume reviewed and compiled, we did not allow authors to revise their work (as is traditionally the case with peer reviewed journals). Rather, they were accepted (or not) in their current state. Please keep that in mind as you look over them. In the future, we hope to be able to integrate a revision stage into the editorial process.
We hope that you find the reports interesting and useful – and, most importantly, that they serve as models for students and faculty members interested in engaging in their own CBR work. And when you do, we hope that you will keep CBR@CSUCI in mind as a venue for showcasing those reports.
