Research Description

My current research with my advisor, Dr. James Rounds, focuses on the development of vocational interest. Specifically, I’m interested in the factors that influence the development of youth’s career aspirations and expectations (e.g., occupational gender stereotypes). I’m also interested in the field of person-environment fit.

Building Remodeling Projects

Click on the title to check out these pictures from the classroom remodeling project in the basement. A second project to replace the elevators will begin in September. Beginning with the freight elevator, each elevator will be out of service for three months. To get quickly from one floor to another, and improve your fitness, we will encourage the use of the stairs. The repainting of the northeast stairwell has been completed, and the painter is starting on the southwest stairwell.
