Arthur Scarritt, professor of sociology, Sarah Mawhirter, lecturer, and 10 undergraduate students of the Intermountain Research Lab in the Department of Sociology presented at the Pacific Sociological Association annual meeting March 27-31 in Oakland.

The students also will be presenting their work at the Boise State undergraduate conference 10 a.m. -12:30 p.m. April 15.
