This presentation describes a community-engaged teaching partnership at Marquette University to demonstrate the utility of bi-directional, mutually beneficial collaboration between community stakeholders and Marquette University faculty and students. Working with community stakeholders to research topics of great importance for the communities (e.g., where does violent crime concentrate, what type of violent crime is most prevalent), students (a) experience the importance of professionalism and responsibilities that accompany investigation of pressing problems in the communities, (b) analyze spatially-referenced data to understand violent crime patterns, and (c) develop strategies for violence prevention and reduction. Because of active engagement of communities in the learning process, Marquette University students develop a greater level of dedication, interest, and care about the health and wellbeing of Milwaukee communities. At the same time, community stakeholders develop working relationships with Marquette faculty and students and capitalize upon these ties to address important issues occurring in Milwaukee communities.
