The UACC Research Committee is one of the oldest continuing research groups in the Cincinnati area. First established in the 1970s, this group meets to share updates about projects that focus on or benefit urban Appalachian communities. Participants at our meetings include researchers and community members from a wide variety of disciplines, including community development and urban planning, public health, literacy, professional writing, community-based participatory research, and Appalachian Studies.
The UACC Research Committee welcomes anyone interested in Appalachian research to attend our meetings. Ordinarily meetings are held bimonthly and are announced in the UACC newsletter, on the UACC calendar, and to the members of the Research Committee.
