Erin Burch has research project accepted into national conference

Erin Burch, a senior psychology major at Southern Arkansas University, has turned a research project into a springboard to deliver a presentation in front of a national conference in New Orleans this February. Her travel will be funded by a student research grant through the SAU Foundation. Titled “College Students Who Experience Depression and Loneliness: The Influences of Sexual and Gender Minority Status,” Burch’s article will be published in the National Social Science Journal (NSSJ) in 2020. This refereed journal accepts only 12-15 percent of all articles submitted. Wilson and Nelson are coauthors of the article. Burch will also present at the National Conference of the Society of Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) in New Orleans. She applied for and received a generous grant from the SAU Foundation to make travel possible. Burch is applying to graduate schools and plans to earn her PhD in psychology.
