“Diversity Competency (DC6)”

Directed by James M. Jones, with Jeong Min Lee and Eric Splan, doctoral students in Psychological & Brain Sciences

Diversity Competence (DC)  reflects the individual, institutional, and cultural competence to address and support diversity efforts to the benefit of everyone. Our research has developed a scale to assess individual levels of diversity competence, the psychological characteristics of it, potential experiences that promote it. Ongoing research is determining behavioral patterns associated with greater diversity competence, and ways in which multicultural and other courses can enhance DC.

"Tell It Like It Is"

Directed by Dr. Rosalie Rolon Dow with Season Cooper and ​Branham Menard, Undergraduate Summer Scholars, and April Davison, Graduate Research Assistant

The Storytelling Project employs qualitative narrative interviewing to document particular experiences that students have or witness on UD's campus related to socially significant categories and/or their intersections. Piloted in summer 2016 with race and ethnicity, the project will expand to social class, student generational status, gender/sexual orientation/identity, and religion as it progresses.

"Diversity Beyond Students: International Students and their Families as Part of the Campus Community"

Directed by Dr. Maryam Hussain, with Xinhui Jiang and Busra Soylemez, doctoral students in Political Science & International Relation

International students face a host of issues as they try to navigate being students in a new country. This process can be made even more complex when students have families they are supporting, who are not eligible to work in the US. The Diversity Beyond Students study uses survey and interview methodology to explore the financial, household, and social stresses of international students and their spouses within the context of US visa and UD policies.
