Laura Schlachter is a recipient of the National Service and Civic Engagement Research award

Congratulations to Laura Schlachter, recipient of the National Service and Civic Engagement Research award. This award will fund her dissertation research "Reevaluating the Workplace-Civic Engagement Relationship". She will build on existing research, address gaps in knowledge, and explore innovative ideas and methodological approaches to this developing field. Laura's research will analyze how participatory forms of workplace organizations can be a strategy to increase civic engagement and will be a resource to practitioners and policymakers who are reorganizing work to create economic opportunity in disadvantaged communities. It will contribute to the broader conversation of redesigning civic infrastructure to reinvigorate American democracy.

About Us

Who We Are

Faculty, students and staff in the University of Wisconsin's Department of Community and Environmental Sociology are concerned with a wide array of issues from environmental degradation and globalization to sustainability and local food systems. The faculty is made up of an interdisciplinary group trained in fields ranging from sociology to science and technology studies and environmental studies. We are an engaged group, whose work while theoretically informed, is often directed at intervening in and affecting real life situations. Our graduate program is equally dynamic and is offered jointly with the UW's Department of Sociology.
