Are you a BSOS student interested in identifying faculty who do resilience work in specific areas of interest? Are you a faculty member interested in connecting with colleagues who do related resilience work in other departments? Are you a community member or journalist looking to find an expert on resilience related issues?
Join the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) departments and programs as more than 40+ faculty members present their work in resilience research. The Department of African American Studies invites all to join Dr. Sangeetha Madhavan, Chair and Professor in African American Studies and Sociology, and Dr. Cecily Hardaway, Assistant Professor, as they present their research topics that focus on health and safety, as well as oppression/stigma in the economic sphere.

Hardaway will present poverty-related risks (e.g., exposure to community violence and material hardship) and adolescents’ socioemotional adjustment and academic achievement.
