• Congratulations to Dr. Erin Leahey (Sociology) who received a  Faculty Small Grant! In her current project Dr. Leahey is working with graduate student Minyoung An to analyze data from the American Association of Medical Colleges to assess whether and how educational debt influences medical students’ decisions to specialize. The research considers socio-economic status and related levels of debt to provide a fuller explanation of how diversity operates in STEM fields.
