Aquinas Sociology Major Selected as Emerging Scholar
Sarah Allen, senior sociology major, has been selected by the Michigan Colleges Foundation as one of two Emerging Scholars at Aquinas College. Sarah is examining the pertinence of the labyrinth model (rather than the glass ceiling model) for professional women. Her qualitative examination is based on interviews conducted with professional women and analysis of their experiences. The results of her research will be presented at the Annual Meeting of the Midwest Sociological Society, and the Michigan Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters. Her faculty research mentor is Dr. Susan Haworth-Hoeppner.
