Congratulations to Jenn de Lugt, Lecturer in Inclusive Education and Core Studies with the Faculty of Education, who is the successful recipient of a Stirling MacDowell Foundation Research Grant ($7000) for the project:  Their Voices: What High School Students are Saying about School-Related Anxiety has been selected for a grant award.

Jenn will be working alongside a classroom teacher throughout the research product to gain deeper understanding of and insight into students’ experiences with anxiety. Dean Jennifer Tupper says, “This is a timely and important focus given the increasing prevalence of anxiety-related issues in young people. The research will no doubt make a very important contribution to understandings of school related anxiety and corresponding supports critical for affected students.”
