We are seeking funding to conduct a behavioral analysis relative to the perceptions of American citizenry and the ideals of civic duty among university students of African diasporic and Latinx populations who have been historically disenfranchised in American society.
This prospective funding will assist our organization in developing academic research relative to a behavioral science analysis of OSU African American and Latinx students ages 18 to 24 to discover the extent of their knowledge of American citizenry and the ideals of civic duty given the limitations of systemic racism, discrimination, and prejudice in American society historically imposed upon African diasporic and Latinx populations.
The project will consist of three phases based on the following objectives: To implement a qualitative methodology of electronic surveying of 200 Oklahoma State University enrolled students of African and Latinx participants; to facilitate a gathering of ten percent of our participants will engage in a focus group activity lasting two to three hours that will be hosted in the OSU 360 Student Union; and to host a panel discussion, open to the OSU community and the public, consisting of six political scientists, psychologists, legislators, and legal professionals with expertise in constitutional law, Black/Latinx psychology, and theories of diversity and inclusion. These three phases will be implemented during the 2023 - 2024 and 2024 - 2025 academic years.
