Springtime at a university campus is often associated with Spring Break – yet, in reality, it is a very busy time for faculty and students as their research and coursework loads often come to a peak at this time. Just this past weekend we had three faculty members travel to Georgia to attend the Evidenced Based School Counseling National Conference at University of Georgia. Dr. Taryne Mingo presented research on Racial Identity Development in the Elementary Setting, accompanied by Dr. Marci Dowdy and Dr. Paul Maddox at this convention. Students are also actively presenting research on a national scale, as exemplified by Katie Curtis and Kara Forck, BSED: K-12 Special Education / Accelerated Masters: Special Education – Autism, shown here at the Midwest Symposium for Leadership in Behavioral Disorders in Kansas City, Missouri. It is a source of pride for the Department of Counseling, Leadership, and Special Education that our faculty and students are active in research, from the undergraduate level through the doctoral level. This research is typically field-based involving action research or intervention-based research directly impacting persons in PreK-20 settings (i.e., preschool through college). We celebrate their accomplishments here today!
