A CLLAS Grantee Presentation with Karina Ramos

Karina Ramos’s project investigates the relationship between Latino immigrants’ migration experience and their psychological distress, support, and education outcomes. The study is unique in nature because it explores the experiences of first-generation, foreign-born, Latino immigrant youth. While other studies have explored migration and distress, this one will be the first to explore such variables in relation to academic outcomes among immigrant youth. In particular, the research project aims to compare predictors of grades in school and academic aspirations among Latino immigrants. Karina Ramos is a PhD candidate in the Department of Counseling Psychology.
