Other ways to get involved

Participate in focus groups

The focus groups are not only a great way to contribute to our project but are also a way to get to know other members of UNIDE. We are conducting Zoom focus groups to investigate variation in sense of belonging in Ecology and Environmental Science (EE) fields both among those typically included and those underrepresented based on ethnicity or race. The focus groups investigate personal stories, shared experiences, and narratives of how individuals became interested in EE fields as well as personal and professional ideas about nature. We run separate groups for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. For more information about focus groups, please contact Amy Kulesza (kulesza.5@osu.edu).

Participate in individual interviews

We are recruiting participants 18 years of age or older to participate in one-on-one Zoom interviews regarding your sense of identity in your Ecology or Environmental (EE) field, aspects of your personal identity, your views on nature, and the influence of the academic context on your sense of belonging in your EE field. We anticipate that the one-on-one interview will take about one hour ​​to ​​complete. For more information about interviews visit the recruitment page or contact Dr. Ariel Rawson (rawson.29@osu.edu) or Dr. Becky Mansfield (mansfield.32@osu.edu).
