DRC believes that students are essential to the Center's research and service mission. External grants typically support students to present work on funded projects. However, gifts to DRC allowed us to support 10 additional students in 2017 to present their independent research and participate in meetings both in the US and abroad. Your gifts also allowed us to host our second fall workshop for the William A. Anderson Fund, where we were able to provide mentoring and professional development to almost 20 Fellows from across the country.
With gratitude, these are just a few of the students you helped support this year:
Post-doctoral researcher Jennifer Trivedi traveled to Santa Fe, NM to participate in the Society for Applied Anthropology 77th Annual Meeting: Trails, Traditions, and New Directions. Trivedi presented "'We don't evacuate here' vs 'We didn't know:' Comparing and Contrasting Choices and Knowledge in Flood and Hurricane Evacuation Decisions".
Valerie Marlowe traveled to Albany, NY to participate in the Research New York 2017 conference. Marlowe presented "The Archivistics of Memory: The Role of Archivists and Archival Repositories in the Post-Disaster Context."
Why I Give
"I give to the DRC as a way to give back to the next generation of practitioners and researchers. The #DRCExperience and my time as a research assistant at the DRC has been invaluable in shaping the course of my career and professional life and I would like to do my small part in passing that opportunity on to others."
