Adults needed for research on children's hearing

The Children’s Auditory Perception Laboratory is currently recruiting adults between 18 and 30 years old for a research study to help us learn more about how children hear.

During the testing, you will sit in a sound-treated room and will listen to sounds presented over a speaker or through headphones. You will be asked to indicate when you hear sounds by selecting a picture on a computer monitor, raising your hand or repeating speech. The sounds we use are not loud.

One visit to the laboratory is required. The visit lasts one hour. You will receive $10 per hour.

If you are interested please email childhear@colorado.edu or call 303-735-6252. The principal investigator for this research study is Angela Yarnell Bonino, PhD, Department Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. All testing will be completed in the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) Building on Main Campus.

Eco-Social Justice Leadership Program: Application deadline extended

The application deadline for the Environmental Center's Eco-Social Justice Leadership Program has been extended to Jan. 24. 

The Eco-Social Justice Leadership Program is a partnership between the Cultural Unity & Engagement Center and the CU Environmental Center. The program brings students who are passionate or curious about social justice issues together with students who are passionate or curious about sustainability on a learning journey to discover how those two things are actually never separate.

The Eco-Social Justice Leadership Program provides unique leadership experience to students, as leaders in the 21st century won’t get far if we’re not at least versed in how power is related to race, class, gender and sexuality and also understand the basics of sustainability.

This semester-long certificate program will help students from these seemingly different arenas start speaking the same language, seeing the connections between the issues most important to them and learn about often unsung leaders and communities in the field of environmental justice who can inspire us all. Students will meet diverse local practitioners who are working locally on these issues and have the opportunity to collaborate with them.
