To begin with, Dr. Meca was selected as a mentor for the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD)‘s Frances Degen Horowitz Millennium Scholars Program. This program was developed as a vehicle to encourage and support scholars from under-represented ethnic/racial groups from North America in pursuing graduate work in developmental science. As a mentor, Dr. Meca had opportunity to provide guidance and support to two amazing doctoral students, Alysa Miller (https://psch.uic.edu/profiles/alysa-miller/) and Hye Jung Park (https://psychology.asu.edu/content/hye-jung-park)!
In addition, Rachel Davis, Richie Kubilus, Julie Rodil, and Dariel Taylor app resented their research focused on the links between identity processes and their relationship to psychosocial functioning, alcohol use, and academic performance, but they also proudly represented the ODU Department of Psychology, ODU College of Sciences, and Old Dominion University! Dr. Alan Meca is so proud of each and everyone of them! RAWR
