PACE works on the following types of projects:
- Survey Research

- Faculty Student
Research Projects (see below)

Faculty Student Research Projects
PACE research teams
consist of 2-6 students/faculty members who
work together on projects that benefit the local community (Town/Local/State Governments).
These teams are formed when a client calls on PACE to gather information,
conduct research and make recommendations or a faculty member develops a
project to investigate a local policy issue.
If you are interested in having a research team work on a project for you,
please contact PACE.
Grant Projects on Local Issues
In the Fall 2004, we worked on a Wicomico County
Voter Education Initiative
to the November 2004 Referendum on Amending the Wicomico County Charter to
Create an Elected Executive. This project was funded by the
Community Foundation of the
Eastern Shore). This project was led by Dr. Harry Basehart and was
managed by Maureen McNeill (project consultant) and Pauline Gehnrich.
Survey Research Projects
Survey research is conducted by PACE on a fee-for-service contractual basis using Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI)
equipment. Dr. Harry Basehart supervises the work on the surveys and our
student Survey Research Project Coordinator assists him. Salisbury
University students are hired to conduct the telephone interviews. A wide
variety of survey services are available, including opinion polls and data
analysis for government agencies, professional associations, businesses
and non-profit organizations. Click here to see a list of
