Psychology Professors Publish Article

Dave Kolar, associate professor of psychology, and Christine McBride, professor of psychology, recently had their paper “Mentoring At-Risk Youth in Schools:  Can Small Doses Make a Big Change?” published in the peer-reviewed journal Mentoring and Tutoring: Partnership in Learning. The paper was chosen by the editor as the lead article in the volume.

The article is one of several papers that have resulted from their three years of work as the assessment and evaluation coordinators on a $475,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education awarded to Rappahannock Big Brothers Big Sisters.
