What is CAP?
The Community Assistantship Program provides applied research assistance to community-based groups outside the Twin Cities metro area. The research and technical needs of community organizations are matched with the support of talented students. The idea is simple: get the resources of a great university working with communities to address the significant issues facing the people of Minnesota. CAP projects typically place students in a community-defined and directed part-time research assistantship for one semester or over the summer. Students are selected by and report to the community organization. Throughout the project, students are supported by a community supervisor, faculty and community mentors.
