Undergraduate research internship blog series: Kelsea Perry
The research video blog series highlights undergraduate students participating in the University Student Summer Internship Program (USSIP). The program, made available through the Office of the Vice-President (Research), is one of the outcomes derived from the first year of the Strategic Research Intensity Plan 2014-2020. The program is intended to give undergraduate students research experience and provide them with valuable skills and mentorship from faculty members and graduate students.
The fifth in our series features Kelsea Perry, a recent graduate from the Faculty of Arts. Kelsea is from Greensboro, North Carolina, U.S. and transferred to Memorial in 2012 to complete her program. For her research internship, she has teamed up with Dr. Rose Ricciardelli from the Department of Sociology to conduct qualitative research on the ways correctional officers in provincial prisons value and use their communication skills when working with youth prisoners.
