LSUS Doctoral Students present at two conferences

February 22, 2016

LSUS faculty member, Dr. Emmanuel Clottey and three students from the Leadership Studies doctoral program presented recently at the 24th Joint National Conference of the National Associations of African American Studies, Hispanic and Latino Studies, and Native American Studies, and the International Association of Asian Studies which was held February 8-13, 2016, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Student presenters, representing Cohorts 2 and 3 of the doctoral program, were Tracey Burrell, Cynthia Harris, and Julie Taufa'asau. Their topics, in alignment with the goals for social justice and diversity component of the Leadership Programs were as follows: The Leader in Ruby Bridges: Lessons of Self-Leadership for African American Adolescent Females (Burrell & Clottey); Mentorship of African-American Women: Necessary for Organizational Success, Career, Health, & Healthcare Advancement (Harris & Clottey); and What are you? Exploring the Voices of Multiracial Students in Independent Schools (Taufa'asau). The presentations were well received by conference attendees and generated some very good discussions. The conference which was attended by a global community of scholars from 229 Academic Institutions and Organizations, gave our students the opportunity to present their work in an international conference.

The next scheduled presentations for Leadership Studies feature Lindsey Ferrington (Cohort 2), who will speak on Servant Leadership Education and the Implicit and Explicit Bias of Physician Assistant Students toward Individuals of Low Socioeconomic Status at the Annual Conference of the Louisiana Education Research Association (LERA) which will be held in Lafayette, LA on March 3-4, 2016. Dr. Iris Johnson, Program Director, will also attend the LERA and plans to serve as a session presider.
