CampBioE


Middle and high school students can participate in a one-week summer camp like no other – one that immerses them in bioengineering and regenerative medicine. We utilize regenerative aspects of the natural world – such as starfish repairing injured arms and reptiles regrowing severed tails- to explore how these traits can be translated to human medicine and treatment. The camp is designed to not only expose students to science but to show them that STEM can be fun, exciting and something that they could pursue as a career.

Curating Racial Storylines: University Prep and the Teenie Harris Archive


A team of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate interns from the School of Education and HAA have organized a year-long extracurricular program for 12 high school students from University Prep, a predominantly Black magnet high school on the Upper Hill. The project will culminate in a student-curated exhibition from the Teenie Harris archive to be displayed at University Prep and (pending space) the Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA). The curriculum focuses on how racial storylines are created and communicated in different forums – photography like Harris’, civic spaces, and museums. Students will be introduced to community elders and oral histories of the Hill, as well as Pitt faculty and a variety of museum and arts professionals who can model careers in their respective fields. The resulting exhibition will be honored with a May 2017 “graduation” ceremony in the CMOA auditorium open to parents, teachers, administrators, museum professionals, and the Pitt community. The larger goal is for this year’s pilot project to expand it into an annual program that will include more students drawn from several schools.

Health Outcomes of Persons in the Pennsylvania Prison System


A research project to contribute knowledge about incarceration in Pittsburgh, particularly in regards to healthcare, and how it has and continues to affect communities. Given how complex, sensitive, and pervasive the issue is, a big portion of the project will involve literature review and compiling data so that it is useful to community organizations like the HRC. It will involve only a limited amount of direct engagement with formerly incarcerated people and their fellow community members. The project will also work on how to engage university students and resources in this work.

Mediating Disciplinary Multiple Source Comprehension for Urban Middle School Learners


The aim of the present study is to investigate instruction that mediates students’ interactions with multiple historical accounts and fosters their ability to impose coherence on those accounts toward a goal of enhanced disciplinary comprehension. We intend to do this through the design and implementation of instructional resources and strategies tailored for middle school students, which target the disciplinary practices of sourcing, close reading, corroborating, and contextualizing. We view imposing coherence as a guiding principle for the effective use of these disciplinary practices with multiple sources and, therefore, frame our work as investigating instructional approaches that help students to develop and apply high standards of coherence to disparate historical accounts by resolving conflicting accounts and building their own historical arguments. Specifically, two questions drive the proposed investigation: (1) What features of lessons and units will most effectively engage middle school students in learning about and using the disciplinary practices of sourcing, close reading, corroborating, and contextualizing with multiple sources? (2) How do such lessons and units mediate students’ ability to impose coherence in the complex landscape of multiple historical accounts?

Student Community Outreach Program and Education (SCOPE I)


Beginning in 2001, the SCOPE I project was created to give pre-clinical dental students valuable experiences in community service. By participating in 50 hours of non-dental community projects during the first two years of dental school, a learning environment was created where students can expand their personal and professional insight, gain experience in cultural competency, and help serve the needs of the community. Students journals are written that reflect on their experiences and these writings are key learning tools for professional development. The majority of acceptable service-learning hours (at least 30 hours) are non-dental in nature.

WORDOUT: Engaging the Community in Research via WORDOUT


The University of Pittsburgh, Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI) community engagement core- Community PARTners (Partnering to Assist Research Translation) -- initiated the "WORDOUT" Community Research Dissemination Challenge in spring 2015. This small grant call for proposals was open to any not-for-profit community organization in the Pittsburgh region and encouraged community organizations to come up with novel ways to get the "word out" about the latest research findings. The organizations could choose any health topic important to their community and any mechanism to deliver the research information. Nine out of eleven awardees were selected to receive funding. All organizations work with marginalized and/or underrepresented and underserved communities. The CTSI worked closely with awardees throughout the entire grant year. Support involved connecting organizations with academic researchers in their chosen health topic area and finding evidence-based literature to create culturally-sensitive and relevant health information to distribute to their community.

Bio Shelter


The Homewood projects support the efforts of The Oasis Project in Homewood. Led by the Bible Center Church, the Oasis Project strives to address the shortage of healthy food in Homewood as a means of empowering its residents and spurring positive change in the community. The church, which is led by Dr. John Wallace (who is also their senior pastor), is making available the land on which the greenhouse will be built and the adjacent row houses that will be retrofitted with DC power. He will also manage the social enterprise projects linked with the food grown in the greenhouses. SolarCell LLC researched and provided designs for the proprietary greenhouse system, complete with the electrical components. The DC HEaRT initiative will help The Oasis Project carry out a range of food-related social enterprises: a community kitchen, a mobile food truck, and community food market, and culinary training, catering services, and food delivery services. The efforts will create jobs and professional development opportunities for Homewood residents. And on a broader level, they will improve the health of Homewood’s children, seniors, and the larger community, and will reduce the socioeconomic stigma associated with Homewood.

Rx Ambassadors


Faculty, staff, and students from the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy engage Pittsburgh area high school students in an interactive presentation that’s designed to bring attention to the opportunities available with a degree in pharmacy. Current pharmacy students (called RxAmbassadors) get to share their personal experiences in attending Pitt’s School of Pharmacy and discuss the academic requirements needed for admission. The presentation is capped off with a role play scenario involving members of the audience assuming various roles of an interprofessional healthcare team. The patient is represented by a human patient simulator who is in urgent need of medical attention. During the interactive scenario, the importance of a pharmacist on a healthcare team is showcased and ultimately displayed when the pharmacist makes an intervention that saves the patient’s life.

Assessing Diversity & Inclusion in Academic Competitions: A Case Study in the Pittsburgh Data Jam


Studying strategies to improve diversity and inclusion in high school academic competitions. Focusing on a local data science competition, the Pittsburgh Data Jam, coordinated by local non-profit organization Pittsburgh DataWorks.

Pittsburgh Area Social Studies Partnership of Reflective Teaching (PASSPORT)


The Social Studies Education Program has developed a unique partnership with public schools around Pittsburgh, including CAPA, West Allegheny, and Taylor Allderdice High Schools to host cohorts of secondary social studies interns for the purpose of establishing and maintaining more substantive community presence during the year-long internship experience. Interns build learning communities that encourage peer observations, collaborative lesson planning and teaching, and open group reflective practice. In return, Pitt faculty (Michael Lovorn and Leigh Tanner) offer PDE-approved content-specific professional development to social studies teachers at these cooperative school sites. As an innovative component of this partnership, interns will join in the professional development activities. This design was piloted during the 2016-2017 academic year, and currently, Lovorn is seeking external funding to expand and enrich these partnerships.

Pittsburgh Latino PhotoVoices


A multidisciplinary project team of faculty and graduate students from Public Health, Anthropology, and HAA will work with the local Latino community to facilitate greater recognition of this fast-growing, emergent community of immigrants. The team will recruit 12 Latinos who work in services, construction, and landscaping to participate, those most likely to carry a heavy burden of social inequity and to lack recognition as important actors within US society. PhotoVoice participants will receive cameras and take photographs of their daily life, addressing the question “What does it mean to be Latino?” Participants and team members will discuss the meaning of the pictures in their own lives and from these discussions curate an exhibition of the photographs for two venues, one at Pitt and one in the Latino community. The team also plans to deposit the materials in ULS's digital repository, where it will have a more lasting online presence.

CUE Lecture Series


During the 2016-17 academic year, the CUE Lecture Series hosted talks from Drs. Jeff Duncan-Andrade and Ken Zeichner on restoring critical hope in underserved urban schools and communities, and bridging gaps between communities and teacher education programs, respectively. Both speakers outlined how to improve educational opportunities for all students by changing the ways we thought of the systems that make it difficult for so many to find success, and challenged audience members to reflect on ways that teacher education programs should tap urban communities and families as resources for supporting schools and teacher learning.

Community Health 1


The purpose of this course is to provide students with a fundamental understanding of pharmaceutical care and to foster a sense of community involvement through service learning. Pharmaceutical care involves being responsible for drug therapy outcomes in order to improve a patient’s quality of life. First-year pharmacy students knowledge about medications and the practice of pharmacy is limited; however, by participating as active volunteers for various organizations, in helping them fulfill their mission and meet the community’s needs, students can practice components of pharmaceutical care (e.g. critical thinking, communicating, demonstrating responsibility, professionalism, and ethical decision making) through service learning experiences. Early exposure to service learning makes didactic instruction more relevant in regards to communication, civic involvement, humanistic care of patients, and social awareness of unmet medical needs. Students will develop the foundation needed to provide patient care, companionship, medication-related services, and screening for medical problems.

Understanding Latino Youth Experiences in an Emerging Latino Community


Partnering with the Latino family center this research project aimed to understand Latino youths experiences of acculturation stress and ethnic identity development when living in an emerging Latino community such as Pittsburgh. We did this using a mixed method approach. Between November 2016 and April 2017 30 Latino youth ages 10 to 16 were recruited to participate six sessions of data collection. At each session youth were given a prompt about Identity or stress and were asked to paint pictures based on that prompt.

BIG Problems


Each Spring my Math 1103 BIG Problems class of 12-20 students spend the semester working on a problem for a local company. Students learn that there is more to a problem than just its original words and in addition to developing standard technical and team skills they learn to work with a liaison to understand the actual problem. The student teams prepare oral presentations to both a technical audience as well as a general audience, write an academic paper, and have presented at conferences. Projects have included using analytics to support sales, identifying good data and fixing bad data in health care analytics, and trying to answer "Can college statistics be used to predict Major League success?" for a Major League Baseball organization.
