A guide to Environmental Science resources at the Woodruff Library.

Morehouse College Environmental Justice and Sustainability Program (MC EJSP)

 The MC-EJSP Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows Program is designed to cultivate the next generation of leaders in the field of environmental justice and sustainability through faculty mentored research experiences. These research experiences will introduce undergraduate scholars to transdisciplinary science being done in the fields of Environmental Justice and Sustainability. ESJP Scholars will work through the scientific process to better understand environmental justice and sustainability, how data is gathered, analyzed and communicated for relevant stakeholders and policy makers.

Research Project Process

Research Project Components – research question, background, hypothesis, relevant databases, analyses

  1. Identify the research problem clearly and justify its selection,
  2. Review previously published literature associated with the problem area,
  3. Clearly and explicitly specify hypotheses [i.e., research questions] central to the problem selected,
  4. Effectively describe the data which will be necessary for an adequate test of the hypotheses and explain how such data will be obtained, and
  5. Describe the methods of analysis which will be applied to the data in determining whether or not the hypotheses are true or false.
  6. Complete data analysis
  7. Prepare report and presentation of project
