Topic/Areas of Interest:
Youth engagement, intergroup relations, race/ethnicity, gender, sex, and intersectionality of identities
In collaboration with Dr. Stacy Morris, Dr. Manpreet Dhillon Brar, students at CSUSB, and in partnerships with institutions within the community, the EnAct lab focuses on promoting and supporting civic engagement in various forms (e.g., digitally, volunteering, activism, political) in different contexts (e.g. institutions, political, communities). We do our work with the goal of improving intergroup relations with attention to diversity, social identities, intersectionality, and equity. Some of the values include mentorship, community action, critical consciousness, accessibility, and collaboration.
We are currently looking for research assistants to support our ongoing work which involves: (1) a mixed-methods study (survey and interview) of CSUSB students to better understand their beliefs and values around community engagement; and (2) a qualitative study involving semi-structured interviews of diverse young people in emerging adulthood to better understand their coping, resiliency, educational and financial experiences amid the uncertain COVID-19 pandemic.
We have research assistant positions available for graduate (x1) and undergraduate students (x2).
