The Little Rock Congregations Study has 3 main goals:
- To improve our understanding of the impacts of faith-based community engagement
- To get students out of the classroom and into the community to learn and give back
- To provide relevant and meaningful findings to the community
Under the direction of Dr. Rebecca A. Glazier at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the Little Rock Congregations Study (LRCS) has been engaging graduate and undergraduate students in hands-on research about the religious organizations in their community since 2012.
