Equity Interns present at the Statehouse

Sunday, April 14, 2019

In early April, Jocelyn Roof, Nicole Nucaro, and Zoe Swinton represented the University--and the Equity Implemented Partnership--at the annual Research in the Capitol event at the Statehouse in Des Moines. 

Students spent the day speaking with legislators and legislative staff, and learning more about the work being done by other outstanding undergraduate researchers at Iowa, Iowa State, and Northern Iowa.  Jocelyn and Nicole presented their qualitative analysis of student comments from the 2018 survey about student-teacher relationships.  Zoe presented her work on the disciplinary experiences of students, and how those impact academic achievement.  It was a great opportunity to share the Partnership's work with policymakers.
