Nancy Gonzales, foundation professor of psychology and dean of natural sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University, led the Fall 2018 CYFS Signature Event presentation Sept. 11 at the Nebraska Union.
Video is now available of her presentation, “Culture, Context and Positive Adaptation of U.S. Latinx Youth.”
Gonzales examined how contextual and cultural experiences provide unique challenges and opportunities for positive development. She also outlined how culturally informed research can enhance interventions, policies and practices to reduce educational inequalities and improve lives.
The CYFS Signature Event series is designed to share research that advances learning and development at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Each Signature Event will feature a research presentation aimed at cross-disciplinary audiences.
