Undergraduate Student Research Survey

As a student registered with your institution’s Office of Disability Services, you are invited to participate in this research.

A self-administered survey will be delivered electronically via the PsychData website. The survey has been designed so that students can complete it easily. It should take 10-20 minutes to complete it. The survey will be active for at least 3 weeks more.

Student participation will be completely voluntary and data will be kept strictly confidential. Results will be reported in group summary form only and no individual names will be used. Any potential publications resulting from this study will not identify the staff from the office of disability services or the names of students involved in the survey. There is a potential risk of loss of confidentiality in all email, downloading, and internet transactions.

After survey completion, you will have an opportunity to enter a drawing for four Visa cards worth $25 each. The findings will help the researchers understand skills and services that help with the transition from high school to college.

The survey has been designed so that you can complete it easily and should take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete. The survey can be found here: Online Survey

Fall Courses Offered in Africana Studies!

If you're looking to round out your schedule this semester there are a few courses being taught in Africana Studies you may be interested in. Please take note of the following courses being offered this upcoming Fall Semester!!

Y308 - Urban Politics
MW - 6-9:15 pm., CA227
Professor Ramla Bandele

Reasons why YOU need to take urban politics! After a relaxing break during the 1st Summer Session, pick up 3 credit hours in Summer 2 and still have some downtime before the Fall!

You'll learn:

  • What power the mayor actually has to govern the city
  • Why the government can confiscate private property (yes, yours too)
  • Why mayors do not control the city schools
  • What the role of the city council is
  • Why most cities cannot expand their borders
  • Where money comes from to run city government (HINT: property tax is not enough)

The Final is a take home exam!

Afro A 303 - Addressing Violence against the Black Lives Matter Movement
Tues. & Thurs. 3:00-5:40 pm., CA227
Instructor: Professor Dominic Dorsey

Are you still looking to fill your schedule for next semester? This fall Africana Studies will be offering a course discussing the movement for black lives and the systems of anti-blackness in society that need to be deconstructed. It's a second 8 weeks course where students will be analyzing systems of oppression through the lens of Michelle Alexander, Ta'Nehisi Coates, James Baldwin and many more. This class promises to be an awesome experience and we hope the discussions will be physically and structurally transformative. Invite your friends! See you in the Fall
