How to Effectively Support Immigrant and Refugee Youth in the Classroom
Marianne Zape is a doctoral student in the Department of Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College. Before coming to Vanderbilt, she graduated with honors from the University of California, San Diego with a B.A. in International Studies and a minor in Education Studies.
Her primary research interests are centered around the social-emotional well-being and mental health of immigrant and refugee youth. She hopes to identify ways to strengthen supports for immigrant and refugee youth across multiple contexts (home, school, community) in order to promote positive social and health outcomes.
Currently, Marianne works with her primary advisor, Dr. Anjali Forber-Pratt on issues related to the identity development and inclusion of persons with disabilities. She also works with Dr. Maury Nation on his study of youth safety and well-being in Nashville schools and neighborhoods.
