Fall 2021 Workshop Series - Mobilizing for Change: Building Your Advocacy Skills
Free and Open to the Public.
This session has now ended. Select workshops from this series can be watched on the Department of Psychology’s YouTube Channel.
While there has been increased attention to training graduate students in advocacy (e.g., Mallinckrodt, Miles, & Levy, 2014), little attention has been given to developing advocacy skills in undergraduate students. With few exceptions (e.g., Campbell, 1996), undergraduate students are not typically taught to connect social science research to public policy.
Teaching advocacy skillsets has the potential to foster deeper understandings of the connections between social science research and the public good, while providing specific skill sets useful for general workforce development.
