Project Description: A large number of students work while attending UM-Flint.  I would like to investigate what they do, how long they do it and then try to ascertain how these characteristics affect what and how they learn.  I will specifically be looking at whether or not working for the university vs. for a private entity affects their propensity to engage in student activism and their political views.  I will be undertaking both surveys of student and conducting focus groups, with a team of participants from all three UM campuses.  

Student Tasks & Responsibilities:  Initially students would be distributing and aggregating data concerning the types of work undertaken by students at UM-Flint

Minimum Student Qualifications:
