In conjunction with UCSD's Education Research and Assessment Hub, I have been hired for the 2019-2020 academic year as a graduate research assistant to help the Department of Sociology assess their undergraduate program.

After analyzing survey data and curriculum maps, I produced an internal report for the Department of Sociology and an abridged report for WASC detailing academic gaps, redundancies, and misalignments in the Sociology program. Our goals are to propose and get approval for strategies to integrate curriculum and assessment to improve the overall undergraduate program. My final report includes proposals for both immediate and long-term changes/initiatives.
