Ten teams across the University of California were awarded the 2017 Larry L. Sautter Award, and Putting Youth on the Map (PYOM) received the Golden Award for Innovation in Information Technology! PYOM is an interactive website that provides analyses of California youth well-being and curricula to support use of the mapping tool.
Monitoring Community Action to Promote Equity: The San Joaquin County Alliance of Boys and Men of Color worked with the UC Davis Center for Regional Change to report analyses of child and youth well-being in Stockton, CA. This report will support the local response to the White House My Brother’s Keeper initiative. In particular, these analyses provide context for local planning and a baseline for monitoring community progress on the initiative’s six milestones.
Professor Gloria M. Rodriguez, School of Education, University of California, Davis
I teach an undergraduate course through Chicana/o Studies called Political Economy of the Chicana/o Community every spring quarter. I have three mid-term papers that are opportunities for students to use publicly-accessible data (via websites, mostly) to do some analysis of the education, health, and labor conditions that intersect to shape the political economies of California’s Chicana/o-Latina/o communities.
Working for the CRC: The Ultimate Millennial Experience!
Last summer, I had an incredible opportunity to work for the UC Davis Center for Regional Change (CRC) as their web designer. While most of my friends were waitressing, getting coffee for their boss, or filing paperwork all day, I was entrusted to design an entire website on my own. From brainstorming to coding to seeing the site go live – I got to be there through it all!
