Edith Melendez

Edith Melendez  is currently a student at Eastern Washington University majoring in Applied Developmental Psychology. Through the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program at Eastern Washington University, she has conducted a qualitative project under the guidance of Dr. C. Torres-Garcia, director of the McNair Scholar Program, and Dr. S. Davis, professor in the Psychology Department, on identifying gaps in academic services for undocumented students at EWU campus using anonymous online surveys. The results were used to frame an argument on the importance of building a space or center for undocumented students. Edith has presented her findings at several national undergraduate conferences. She is developing her manuscript for publication. Edith recently got selected as an Academic Research Consortium Scholar. She will be conducting research under the guidance of Dr. Maryam Kia-Keating, an Associate Professor in the Counseling, Clinical & School Psychology, at the University of California Santa Barbara.
