Over the 2018-19 school year, CSCH faculty worked with two undergraduate students through the Office of Undergraduate Research. Their research on supporting student mental health through multi-tiered support systems culminated in a poster presentation at the UConn Frontiers Undergraduate poster exhibition. Corona Zhang is a junior majoring in Anthropology and minoring in Statistics and Ireti Adegbesan is a graduating senior who majored in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Early Childhood Development. Before returning to UConn for her final year, Ms. Zhang will be spending the summer in New York City, working on a research project focusing on child and maternal health at NYU Langone Health. Ms. Adegbesan will be moving on to a doctoral program in Human Development and Family Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where she will specialize in child development.
Both Ms. Adegbesan and Ms. Zhang have written CSCH Briefs about their research interests: https://csch.uconn.edu/brief-reports/
