Online Survey – Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by

Hello Auggies! I am a graduate student seeking participants for a research study. I am exploring how one’s ability to recognize and regulate their own and others’ emotions may relate to feelings of depression and social disconnect. Participation in this study will involve completing a series of behavioral health inventories and a demographic screener that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. These inventories will ask if you have experienced symptoms of depression or loneliness and ask how intensely you experience your everyday emotions. Following completion of these inventories, participants will complete a test online that will walk participants through a variety of different tasks, such as recognition of facial expressions and implied social meanings. This test will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. All participation in this study is done online from the comfort of your own home. Students are invited to participate in this study if you: (1) are between the ages of 18 and 31; (2) have not been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, or a personality disorder; (3) have not experienced an interpersonally traumatic life event (i.e., assault by another human being); and (4) are not currently experiencing a major health concern (i.e., life threatening illness/injury or significant transplant/removal surgery).

For your time, participants will be entered into a random lottery drawing for one of three $100 Amazon gift cards!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation in this study, please contact me at If you would like to participate in this study, please click the link below. You will be taken to a secure, online survey where you will be presented with a consent form followed by the demographic screener and brief inventories. Upon completion of these, you will be shown the link to the final assessment.

Thank you!

Pan-Asian Student Services – EAST Event

submitted by

Join us on Thursday, March 7th @ 4:00-5:30 in Hagfors 150B

The EAST event will feature KaYing Yang, who will be addressing key issues that Asian students face and provide insights on data disaggregation, aftermath of COVID, and self advocacy to set up for success. The event provides students a space to be aware of the broader issues that may impact their success as a student and how to advocate for themselves. All are welcome to come hear, learn, and discuss key issues impacting Asian students.

KaYing is the President of RedGreen Rivers and KaYing + Community and has over two decades as a dedicated social justice advocate. Her career includes leadership in community organizing, policy engagement, and development efforts globally. Notably, in the mid 1990’s she worked with the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) in Washington, DC, addressing disparities in the Asian American community. KaYing’s international roles include the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank Group in the early 2000s. By mid-2000, in Minnesota, she served as the Director of Policy for the Coalition of Asian American Leaders (CAAL). As an entrepreneur, KaYing heads RedGreen Rivers, promoting artisans globally, and KaYing + Community, a nonprofit consulting business. Her distinguished career earned her many recognitions and invitations to be the keynote speaker at major events. She was a recipient of the 2019 Bush Foundation Fellowship, and in 2022 she was appointed to President Biden’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders.
