During the academic year, SOGI hosts open meetings to discuss lab news, share project updates, and provide an opportunity to collaborate on our projects. Our biweekly lab meetings are held Mondays at 3pm in GEA 125 starting January 9th. If you would like to visit a meeting, or to learn more about the lab, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These meetings are a great way to learn more about the work we do at SOGI and get involved. Meetings are open to students, faculty, staff, and invited guests — we would love for you to join us!

The SOGI: Health and Rights Lab receives a high volume of undergraduate research assistant requests and academic lab credit requests. Please be sure that you can attend the in person meeting times before emailing your inquiry. The SOGI Lab also prioritizes current research assistants who have experience in the lab as a volunteer prior to academic requests such as thesis/independent study advising and practicum courses.
Research assistants may volunteer or sign up for course credit; a limited number of positions may be available for pay. Research tasks will include data entry, basic data summary analysis and reporting, library research / literature searches and bibliographic database management, and some data analysis (depending on interests and experience). Ability to work both independently and as part of a team is essential.
