BU's Center for Community Research and Consulting (CCRC) features a dedicated team of faculty and students who collaborate to improve the community through internship opportunities, research and professional development.

Internship Opportunities

As a CCRC intern, students get the opportunity to assist the center on various research projects that focus on the community, allowing them to have a hands-on approach to improving the community while utilizing skills that have been learned in the classroom.

Research Experience

Students take part in various research projects geared toward improving the surrounding communities. Students are involved in various forms of data collection and produce useful materials for communities and organizations.

Professional Development

Students have the ability to collaborate and network with professionals from a wide range of disciplines and expertise. This development occurs in a hands-on and interactive environment where students have the ability to enhance professional skills from working directly with our directors and with other community and organization leaders.
