Looking for Multiracial study volunteers!

If you are over the age of 18, self-identify as multiracial, reside in the United States, and are interested in participating in a multiracial study, please see the information below.

My name is April Hortman and I am a doctoral student in Human Development at Marywood University, Scranton PA. I am currently completing my doctoral work on multiracial experiences.

Purpose of the study: The purpose of this cross sectional study is to examine the effects of multiracial classification choices on self-identified multiracial individuals, paying particular attention to the complexities these choices have on internal feelings of self and perceptions of social environments. The multiracial population has a significant and critical place in research on this population as it examines how multiracial category choices restrict individuals’ concept of self identity.
