Dr. Carmen Monico, Associate Professor of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCAT) and new faculty in the Joint Master and PhD Social Work Programs of NCAT and the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG), got two peer-reviewed articles published in fall 2020 (cited below). Both publications are the result of mentored research that Monico conducted with undergraduate students from Elon University, prior to starting teaching in the joint program. One article highlights Monico’s teaching and research experience in conducting practicum courses abroad and the importance of community-engaged research, which is one of the courses Monico now teaches in the joint program. The second article falls within Monico’s main area of research, global migration, with an emphasis on the experience of migrant children, youth, and young adults.
