The Advanced Qualitative Collective (AQC) is a staple student-run group founded with the vision of Dr. Sarah Kagan in the early 2000s (Abboud et al., 2017). Housed in the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing, the AQC has met weekly for many years with the guiding goal of advancing and deepening qualitative research knowledge, skills, and critical appraisal. Hillman Scholars have been and continue to be active members and committed leaders of the group, collaborating with pre- and post-doctoral students to co-create a pedagogical and collegial space to learn and grow.
