The HOD field school is an experiential learning program designed to promote the development of university students and community partners as they work together toward integrating research and action around social justice issues through community-based participatory methods. In this chapter, we describe the theoretical foundations and history of the HOD field school and the experiences of community partners and student participants, comparing experiences across settings and expanding on themes that have been observed consistently. Throughout our discussion we address the complexities of simultaneously meeting the personal and professional needs of students while working with communities in ways that align with the ideals of empowerment, reciprocity, intercultural respect, learning, participatory research, and sustainability. Finally, based on experience and theory we offer suggestions for educators who are interested in developing similar programs.
