Undergraduate Advisory Board

SHIFT’s Undergraduate Advisory Board (UAB) is comprised of approximately 20 undergraduates from across the Columbia and Barnard communities. Students were selected through an open application process in the spring of 2015. The role of the UAB is to provide input on study design, participant recruitment, and data collection methods, as well as serve as liaisons for the research team to campus life. The UAB has played a fundamental role in shaping our research, helping to ensure we are asking questions in a way that feels appropriate to students, developing strategies to recruit students for research, and providing insight into life at Columbia and Barnard. You may see members of the UAB around campus this spring sporting t-shirts or sweatshirts with the SHIFT logo, and you may also see them post about SHIFT on Facebook. They can answer many questions you might have about our work. The UAB will review findings as they emerge and provide student perspectives about our recommendations.
