Wallace Accepts First Place for Poster Presentation



On April 20th, 2016, Ph.D. student Samantha Wallace accepted a first place award for her poster presentation at OU's annual Graduate Student Research and Creativity Day. The project earned the first place award in the Social Sciences B division. The project, entitled "The Importance of Intersectionality in Addressing College Campus Sexual Assault: Examining Gender, Sexual Identity, Race, Ethnicity, Social Class and College Group Affiliations," is a co-authored work with faculty member and primary investigator Dr. Meredith Worthen. The piece uses a feminist perspective to examine attitudes toward college sexual assault education training programs using mixed methods, in order to understand how intersectional identities shape reactions to the training programs.
