Dr. Tara Shelley and Adam Mayer (Sociology) awarded TILT service learning mini grant

Dr. Tara O’Connor Shelley and graduate student Adam Mayer recently received a service learning mini grant entitled, “Sense of place, risk/ benefit perceptions, local drilling and fracking policy preferences among Coloradoans” from The Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT) at Colorado State University to incorporate service learning into the Sociology Department’s Fall semester Capstone course (SOC 403-02). The Service Learning Capstone will provide students with the opportunity to: (1) to apply research skills learned in the classroom while receiving in-depth mentorship from faculty and graduate students; and (2) experience the nuances of implementing research into practice.

Congratulation to Dr. Tara Shelley and Adam Mayer!
