In collaboration with David Lake (UCSD), Gregory Hall (formerly Morehouse), and Fatemeh Shafiei (Spelman), we launched the UCSD-Morehouse-Spelman Inaugural Summer Research Program 2016. In 2017 and 2018, David Lake and I worked with Danielle Raudenbush (UCSD Sociology), Matthew Platt (Morehouse Political Science), Fatemeh Shafiei (Spelman Political Science), Derrick Brian (Morehouse Sociology) and Cynthia Neal Spence (Spelman Sociology) to expand!
Thanks to the support of UCSD's Office of Graduate Studies and Dean of Social Sciences, the political science and sociology departments at UC San Diego welcomed up to 8 undergraduate students from Morehouse College and Spelman College in 2017. Each student was paired up with a faculty member from our political science (up to 6 spots) and sociology (up to 2 spots) departments and worked as a research assistant on an active research project. Additionally, all students were integrated into the UCSD STARS program, an eight-week summer research academy.
We enjoyed another successful program this past summer 2018, and look forward to at least two more years of welcoming these students at UCSD.
