Two CSR-affiliated faculty, two graduate students, and five undergraduate students participated in the Arkansas Sociological and Anthropological Association (ASAA) undergraduate symposium in Conway, AR.
Presenters included Patricia Snell Herzog, Tiffany Hood, Tasmiah Amreen, Olivia Chambers, Sanjana Vengopal, Zina Hardin, and Garrett Story.
The students described their experience participating in social research during a talk entitled, "The Emerging Leaders Study: Investigating Millennials and Innovating Social Research Methods."
The Emerging Leaders Study (ELS) aims to investigate and contribute to the formation of emerging adults as productive multicultural leaders. The ELS builds on two prior studies: the National Study of Youth & Religion (NSYR), which investigated a national sample of U.S. Millennials longitudinally from adolescence (2001) into early emerging adulthood (2013). The second study is the Science of Generosity (SciGen): a national, cross-sectional study of adult Americans (2010) and their generosity. This project history informs the topics of the current study: the social changes to organizations as Millennials establish adulthood and assume leadership roles.
