Additionally, gaps in research will be addressed and the potential for USM faculty to pursue innovative research in the areas of student, community, and faculty experiences.

Dr. Gerstenblatt will share her research about the partnership between the rural town of Mart, Texas and the University of Texas at Austin, and how this unique community-university partnership can inform work at USM and the Greater Portland area.
