Doctoral student Jennifer Renick awarded Public Impact Fellowship

Jennifer ​Renick, a fourth-year doctoral student, is one of 10 UCI graduate students honored as a 2021 Public Impact Fellow.


As a part of her research, Renick will facilitate a youth-participatory action research project in partnership with a local middle school, where a group of students will identify an aspect of school climate that they would like to improve and then design their own research project to investigate the issue, implement a solution, and study its impact. “Engaging adolescents as co-creators of research, rather than just subjects, allows us to leverage their expertise on issues they experience directly to generate research with greater accuracy and practical implications to improve their school community,” Renick said.

Congrats on receiving this award Jennifer!
