The conference was held under the theme “Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders Through Research and Action.” Two faculty mentors, Dr. Frances Staten and professor Clarence Williams along with four students, De’Vaughn Madise, a sociology  major, Keisha Laville and Kisha McCoy, social work majors and Cameron McGlotten, sociology major, represented GSU.

The GSU students’ Research and poster session was entitled “Impacts of Climate Change on College Students: A Visual Review and Case Studies.” 

“What I got out of attending and presenting at the conference, is that we aren’t the only ones impacted by flooding. Also that there are many more concerns out there involving climate change. I personally loved and enjoyed the experience to get out there and show what I could do, because it opens up so many opportunities in life with the connections I’ve made,” said Madise.

McGlothen said, “The conference allowed me to network with other HBCU students and faculty while learning and gaining knowledge on how to better our university.”

McGlothen was thankful  he wasw able to represent the university. He said experience is what he gained the most and listening to his peers. 

“Rome wasn’t built in a day,” the same should be said about global warming. Though work has been done, we still have a long way to go. 

Other students who worked on the project but were unable to attend included psychology majors Shaciarra Drake and Latravia Jackson. Students who participated in the conference are eligible to attend the “World Climate Change Conference” in Morocco.
