Sharing Stories and Taking Action: Racial Justice Grantee ShowcaseIn fall 2020, the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences announced its first two Eberly Racial Justice Grant awards to support research and initiatives being undertaken across WVU. At this virtual showcase, learn more about both projects: the people behind them, the progress so far, future plans and ways the community can get involved. The next round of grant proposals for spring 2021 will also be discussed.
Eberly Distinguished Professor of Public Service and Professor of Psychology Daniel McNeil and Senior Associate Dean and Professor of Public Health Linda Alexander, longtime research collaborators, are studying the impact of the historical legacy of vaccine utilization in the Black community. Through surveys and focus groups, the study is expected to have a significant impact on approaches to administering anticipated vaccines for COVID-19.
The Eberly Racial Justice Grants were made in partnership with the WVU Office of Research and the Center for Resilient Communities.
