For Faculty

Congratulations to the following faculty members for their spring 2017 CPIE Faculty as Partners mini-grant awards:

Sophia Rodriguez (Dept. of Teacher Education) - $1500 faculty research support - This place…immigration knocks on my door. Where do I belong? Examining how community-school partnerships shape mental health for undocumented youth. This study explores the experiences of recently arrived undocumented youth in three Title I public high schools that partner with a community-organization in South Carolina. The sites are similar in demographics and rising undocumented Latino populations but differ in how mental supports manifest. Research participants include undocumented youth that utilize the community-school partnership supports. 

Ashley Vaughns & Jennifer Barrett-Tatum (Dept. of Teacher Education) - $500 service-learning challenge - Supporting young children’s development.  The purpose of this project is to provide preservice teachers and families with young children the opportunity to develop practical knowledge about how to support young children’s developmental milestones through play and literacy activities. More specifically, preservice teachers will work with at-risk mothers to develop literacy and play experiences for an indoor play space.
