The UNO's Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) will wrap up its spring Charla Series on Tuesday, April 17 at 11:30 A.M. with a talk by Dr. Jonathan Santo, in the Milo Bail Student Center – Ballroom.
Dr. Jonathan Santo, Associate Professor of Psychology and OLLAS faculty, will discuss the relationship between ethnic victimization and academic functioning, and interesting findings, including the discovery that respect for diversity at the school level moderated the association between ethnic victimization and academic functioning. Dr. Santo will further discuss the implications of this study, especially with regards to the relevance of promoting respect for diversity at the school context. This charla is based on these associations in a nation-wide sample of Brazilian adolescents.
The event is free and open to the public.
