Equity Gaps Among Diverse CSU Student GroupsPresentation Year: 2020
- Lizbeth NavarroSocial WorkGraduate Student
Crutchfield and Maguire (2018, 2019) completed basic needs assessments of the CSU system and data from those will be analyzed to explore equity gaps among diverse student groups reporting food and housing insecurity with focus on hours worked, and hours of familial obligations. A policy recommendation is for university volunteer and internship hours to count as an eligibility exemption for CalFresh .

Psychological disorders are prevalent in college students, but fewer than 25% of students with mental disorders seek treatment. One factor important in predicting help-seeking is stigma. We looked at self-stigma and public stigma as related to formal and informal help-seeking. Self-stigma is conceptualized as internalizing feelings of prejudice toward oneself while public stigma represents prejudice about mental health held by others. We hypothesized that students with higher self-stigma would be less likely to seek both formal and informal help. We further hypothesized that higher public stigma is related to lower formal help-seeking, but have no relationship with informal help-seeking.
Exploring Recreation Based Therapy as an Effective Form of Treatment For Individuals Affected by Grief and TraumaPresentation Year: 2020
- Emily WoodRecreation AdministrationUndergraduate Student
Grief and/or trauma affect everyone at some point in their lives, yet there are few traditional resources available to those who need them due to various barriers and constraints such as geographical isolation or cost of affordable treatment. Within this project, recreation and leisure is explored as a treatment and/or mechanism for forward growth in those affected by trauma and/or grief.
Extending the Work of CHECK IT and SVP into the Animal Rights CommunityPresentation Year: 2020
- Rachel CliftPolitical ScienceUndergraduate Student
Applying the skills I have learned in the Students For Violence Prevention program to real-world animal rights activism has already proven to be highly successful, and it is clear that the work of the SVP and CHECK IT communities may easily have their work extended into that of the animal liberation community. Through close collaboration with local farms and markets, the encouragement of more animal rights groups on Humboldt State University campus, and the formation of educational programs specifically made to reach out to youth, I believe that our students could potentially have a strong impact on the enforcement of animal welfare in Humboldt County.
Female Religious Leaders of HumboldtPresentation Year: 2020
- Madison HazenReligious StudiesUndergraduate Student
The aim of this research is to gain insight into the experience of female religious leaders in Humboldt County, centering around the challenges, obstacles, and opportunities faced by women in these roles. How do such figures view their gender has affected them in terms of authority, personal spirituality, and relationship to religious tradition? By conducting a series of ethnographic interviews with local religious leaders, these questions have been explored across faith traditions. The examination of gender and power is not only limited to a religious setting, but extends broadly to society as a whole.
Finding Nemo: Where Are The Fish Going?Presentation Year: 2020
- Cade FreelsPhysicsUndergraduate Student

- Ana SammelMathematicsUndergraduate Student
Rising ocean temperatures will have a huge impact on life in the ocean, and on the communities that have an economic dependence on the fishing industry. It is important to understand the ocean’s changing environment and the serious repercussions these changes will bring to humanity, in order to prepare for the future. To help plan for this future, we have created a mathematical model that predicts where herring and mackerel, two types of fish located around Scotland, will relocate to over the next 50 years, and the impact these relocations will have on small Scottish fishing companies.

Built a mathematical model to perform prediction analysis of the fish stock assessment located in Scotland and the affects of rising temperature in Atlantic Ocean.
Food Deserts and Why They OccurPresentation Year: 2020
- Payton FellerEnvironmental StudiesUndergraduate Student
This project centers on the environmental justice issue of food deserts in low income, poor communities of color and also breaks down why these people and areas are targeted. Major ongoing systemic structures, such as environmental racism and redlining are defined and explained, with examples, to help the audience understand how this issue was created. Finally, my own positionality is incorporated for contrast, further explaining the systemic processes coming into play.
How Working an On-Campus, Part-Time Job Can Improve Retention Rates Among Racially Minoritized Students Pursuing a Bachelor’s DegreePresentation Year: 2020
- Shannon BergeEducationGraduate Student
Having a part-time job is a necessary part of life for many college students. It is possible that working an on-campus part-time job can have a positive effect on student retention, especially for racially minoritized students. This research investigated if there is a correlation between persistence to graduation and on-campus part-time employment for racially minoritized students by examining sense of community, self-reliance, and sense of self. Additionally, four professional academic advisors were interviewed about advising students who are working while in college.
