About

How is research on campus helping to address pressing problems in the greater Cleveland community?  And, how can you have an impact too?  CWRU professors share their research and community outreach in three interactive workshops. Weatherhead Professor Michael Goldberg will focus on overcoming obstacles to entrepreneurship. CWRU School of Medicine Professor Daniel Tisch and Political Science Professor Kelly McMann will explore how their research on political institutions’ impact on COVID-19 outcomes influences Dr. Tisch’s work at the Cleveland Department of Public Health. Anthropology Professor Lee Hoffer will discuss his research on understanding and predicting trends in drug use, and how drug markets and acquisition influence the lives of those who use drugs.

Hosted by the International Studies Honor Society, Sigma Iota Rho, in collaboration with the International Studies Program.
