Dr. Scott Harper, assistant professor of family studies at Oklahoma Christian University, sends this excellent news:
Kyung Lee and I have been accepted to present in November at the international conference in San Francisco that is hosted by the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR). The top scholars and graduate students from around the country (and world) meet annually. It is among the most prestigious conferences and events in the field of family studies. The title of the presentation is “Filipino Fathers and Transnational migration: What about the children”. In this study I focused on Filipino fathers who leave home for long periods of time due to work. I studied how they can still be involved in the lives of their children and have a positive role beyond that of financial contribution. We received some of the highest marks possible for the proposal. From one of the 3 independent scholarly reviewers we received a perfect score, and we were 1 point shy of a perfect score from another reviewer.
Kyung “Rosa” Lee is an international student from Korea and will be graduating next May with a degree in Family Studies and Child Development.
Congratulations to Dr. Harper, Kyung Lee, and the entire Department of Family Studies.
