Undergraduate Research Fellowship

The 2015-2016 Undergraduate Research Fellowship is co-sponsored by Seattle University‘s Global African Studies Program, Political Science Department, and Women & Gender Studies Program under the direction of Angelique M. Davis, JD.  It is an opportunity for undergraduate students to assist in research that delves into the complexities of police and vigilante violence towards communities of color and the dynamics that play into the systems that perpetuate such violence. These students come from different fields of study that complement one another on collaboratively conducting the research. The work of these students and others contributing to this initiative will collectively give voice to Black mothers through analyzing and articulating their experiences of the untimely and systematic murders of their children.

Currently, the fellows have conducted research on police murders, local government responses, no human involved (NHI) designation, emergency response, mental health, Department of Justice (DOJ) processes and responses, and vigilante violence.

The fellows are currently in the process of creating a community educational events that will be open to the Seattle University and the greater Seattle communities. These events are aimed at bringing light to their research, supporting the efforts of MUV, and promoting community engagement and collaboration.
