Cristina Javens ’23 awarded research grant to study Nelson A. Rockefeller ’30

Cristina Javens ’23, a sophomore planning on majoring in Sociology and minoring in Public Policy, was recently awarded the Undergraduate Research and Advising Sophomore Research Scholarship during the Winter and Spring 2021 terms to study the policy positions of Nelson A. Rockefeller ’30 and “Rockefeller Republicans.”

Cristina started her journey with the Rockefeller Center by taking PBPL 5 “Introduction to Public Policy” and by participating in the Dartmouth Leadership Attitudes and Behaviors (D-LAB) program during her first year. Since then, she has taken PBPL 45 (“Introduction to Policy Research”) and recently began working with the Rockefeller Center Director, Professor Jason Barabas, on a series of projects related to the namesake of the Rockefeller Center.

With Professor Barabas serving as her advisor and mentor, Cristina applied for the Undergraduate Research and Advising Sophomore Research Scholarship to work on a project to identify the policy positions of Nelson A. Rockefeller ‘30 and “Rockefeller Republicans” from a variety of sources, such as news stories, biographies, and public opinion polls from the era.
