    EAU CLAIRE — Education students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will share the results of semester-long diversity research projects during the Research Expo April 26.
    The Research Expo, which will run from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Council Fire Room of Davies Center, will feature 37 projects designed by 110 students currently enrolled in four sections of the foundation of education’s "Social Foundations of Human Relations" course, taught by Dr. Cynthia Gray-Mash and Dr. Katherine Rhoades. The event has been held each semester since the fall of 1998.

Examples of research projects to be displayed include:

·         "Jazz Education as Diversity Education"

·         "The Klu Klux Klan: Youth Recruitment Strategies"

·         "The Juvenile Justice System in Eau Claire"

·         "The Christian Youth Movement at UW-Eau Claire"

·         "Depression in College Students"

·         "Understanding Jehovah Witness"

·        "Antiquarian Culture Clash: Studying Forgotten Peoples"

·         "St. Bedes Sisterhood"

    "The projects introduce students to research as applied to the understanding of cultural complexity and reflective processes that strengthen professional practice in teaching and other professions," said Gray-Mash, assistant professor of foundation of education. "Students use various forms of inquiry as a tool to better understand diversity in a changing world."
    The event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Gray-Mash at (715) 836-5587 or send her e-mail at or contact Rhoades at (715) 836-3672 or e-mail her at
