“The 2017 Zoukis Summer Institute is designed for rising college juniors and seniors interested in a deep dive into issues at the intersection of politics and justice,” said Toby Bolsen, associate professor in the Georgia State University Department of Political Science and director of the Zoukis Research Collaborative.
Enrolled students have the chance to collaborate with other students who share similar interests and participate in a group research project.
“Each day in addition to the panels, student participants gain valuable experience analyzing data gathered via primary research and existing data. At the end of the event a group presentation will be made on the findings,” said Dr. Bolsen.
