Professor Brad Jones is currently serving as the Supervisory Mentor in UC Davis' AB540 and Undocumented Student Center's Mentorship and Professional Development Program. Jones is also a Faculty Mentor in the Mentorship for Undergraduate Research in Agriculture, Letters, and Sciences (MURALS) program.
Through these two positions, Jones is able to work closely with two Latino students: one undocumented, and the other, a second-generation Latino student. These two students assist in Jones' project, which is a multidisciplinary collaboration with Professor Jeffrey Sherman (Psychology, UC Davis) and Dave Vannette (Post Doctoral Fellow in Political Science, UC Davis).
One of the main goals of the project is to examine variations in how Latinos see, perceive, report, and respond to discrimination and stereotype threat.
