The Cultural Heritage and Racial Identity (CHRI) Lab is seeking undergraduate research assistants to assist in various projects with the overarching goal of understanding protective (e.g., identity and cultural factors) and risk (e.g., racism) factors that play a role in psychological well-being among ethnic minority individuals. Current research projects in the CHRI Lab include the following:
SIMS: This study examines how college students of color perceive their social identities and the relationship between these social identities, and whether this may relate to psychological outcomes such as wellbeing.
ASPIRE: The study focuses on a community intervention program for Black American adolescents in partnership with local afterschool programs.
InSciScoop: The research project assesses graduate students’ experiences of incivility in STEM fields.
ROAR: This study explores how religious orientation and religious coping interacts to create positive well-being within Black Christian-identified communities.
More studies may also develop in addition to the ones listed throughout the academic year. To apply as an undergraduate research assistant with CHRI Lab, please submit your application using the instructions provided on our lab page.
