Research: Exploring the New Age of Activism

Our goal is to build on the work begun last summer. Exploring leadership communication and freedom of expression issues including the first amendment.

Abstract of my research

My interest revolves around the desire to increase a better understanding of how communication and civics work together to help create “the big picture” for students. Students will explore language impacting issues that create protests challenging current policy to protect our democracy. 

Student's Role

Students will assist with gathering research, creating assessment tools, and assist in gathering data to assess the civics training of millennials on an HBCU campus. 

Desired majors: communication, history, political science, and education
