At the Puerto Rico Public and Applied Social Sciences Workshop we are inspired by all the amazing work that happens everyday on the Island. We are social scientists, technologists, artists, community leaders, civic minded professionals and students that come together to advance the resilience and growth of non-profit organizations through capacity building projects. Our projects are designed with the entities we serve, incorporating participatory action research. Mindful of the social ecology needed to ensure the sustainable development, we craft experiential learning opportunities into every project and collaborate in the production and dissemination of local knowledge in the applied social sciences, culture and the humanities. In this way, each project builds bridges between pools of knowledge, or PASSports for the frequent exchange of knowledge.
