Students Invited to Present Original Research at the Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research

Group photo at eventThe Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is an annual celebration of excellence in undergraduate research, held this year held at Pasadena City College. Four AULA undergraduate students (pictured from left to right: Noah Christensen, Kelsee Luttgens, Rose Nayar, Angelika Bowles) were accepted to present their original research in oral sessions.

“Our team presented an original research project examining the effectiveness of disclaimers,” wrote Christensen and Luttgens in an email. “Our research found that the effectiveness of disclaimers varied significantly depending on where they were used in a statement. This was a new finding in a well-established area of social psychology research, and one we were very excited to share. Presenting at the SCCUR conference was a true honor. Being able to represent the Antioch University Undergraduate program and the work we do to the wider academic community was incredibly gratifying. We are very fortunate to work under the mentorship of Andrea Richards, who supported us at every step of the journey.” They also expressed gratitude for the new friendship that grew from working together on the project.

Their mentor, Andrea Richards, PhD Core Faculty, BA in Liberal Studies and Dean of Assessment and Student Learning, Academic Affairs wrote: “In presenting their research at SCCUR, four of our amazing undergrads discovered how well equipped they were for this level of engagement with critical thinking in the social sciences.  They impressed the audience with their professionalism and mastery of the content, demonstrating how well Antioch has prepared them to do academic presentations. These students honored Antioch by sharing their excellent work and helped shine a light on our institution within this arena.”
