Community-Academic Research Alliance (CARA)

The Community-Academic Research Alliance is a community-based research initiative that supports research partnerships between Washington and Lee University and non-profits in the Rockbridge area to address pressing community challenges. These partnerships aim simultaneously to mobilize the community for responsible social change, lay the foundation for a healthy community, and advance the education of Washington and Lee students. CARA projects can yield academic credits either in the form of independent study or course-based projects.
