From June to August of 2017, Alma Olavarria Gallegos was funded by the Undergraduate Research Office to research the formation of institutional programs that aim to support historically oppressed populations. Working closely with Special Collections and College Archives and the Center for Digital and Liberal Arts, Alma aimed to preserve the information she collected and her research findings online for future use.
"I structured my research during a time when I felt the resources on campus were insufficient for the need demonstrated. By collecting the history of programs that are currently in place to service oppressed peoples, I hoped to aid future organizers with models of successful interventions."
