7th Annual Youth Development Research Conference, Ithaca, NY May 31-June 1

Fran was invited to speak at an upcoming conference in Ithaca and just learned that there will be a table at the conference to recruit for studies that might be relevant to the youth development practitioners attending the conference. These practitioners largely work with youth (grades K through 12) in 4-H programs throughout New York State. If you are recruiting participants for any studies that might benefit from collaborating with youth development programs, I request that you send me a 3 sentence blurb that includes your target population, a general study description, how long it takes to participate, any incentives, and the name and email of a contact person. Please send at your earliest convenience and I will forward to the conference organizer.

Research Celebration

The Research Celebration will take place on Wednesday, May 10, from 6-8PM on the 12th Floor.  All students enrolled in research seminars are expected to present.  Dr. Ness has created a Google Form to organize time slots and to collect presentation titles for your work.  Please fill out the form as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please email Dr. Ness.
