Research Assistant Using Grant to Create Diplomatic Simulations

This project,"Diplomacy in Action: Diplomatic Simulations in the Classroom," is being funded by a $198,000 grant from the State Department's U.S. Diplomacy Center. 

Galarza, a freshman, is a Biology major who has learned that research skills can be learned - and applied - to interdisciplinary subjects. Skills such as collecting background information, communication with diverse groups, and interacting with the complexity of global issues are all things that she can take with her when moving on toward medical research.

Further, Galarza states why OSCAR encourages and promotes Research Assistant positions:

“I get to work with projects that are going to help people,” she said. “It’s not like my old job at the movie theater—it’s actually helping me get where I want to go.”
