Senior criminal justice major Alexa DeSantes presented her capstone research at the North Central Sociological Association conference in Pittsburgh, PA. In her research entitled "College Students' Attitudes Toward Prison Conditions and Prisoner Rights," DeSantes used Q-Methodology to sort her participants' statements about prison conditions and prisoner rights. She then used statistical analysis to discover themes, or factors, in the data. Dr. Kristenne Robison and Dr. Kristin Park advised DeSantes during her research. Dr. James Rhoads assisted with the statistical analysis.
