Effects of Immigrant-Native Comparisons on Beliefs and Giving-Behaviors

Victoria Asbury is a Doctoral Student in Harvard Sociology. Born in Miami, Florida, and raised in Inglewood, Corona, and Victorville, California, Victoria went northward to Stanford as a first-generation college student in 2007. Four years later, she graduated with a B.A. in African & African American Studies with honors from Stanford University as well as a M.A. in Policy, Organization, and Leadership Studies from Stanford Graduate School of Education in 2011. After college, Victoria worked at NBC Universal for several years, including a year and a half at MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” show, where she booked over 300 guests and produced dozens of segments focused on inequality and marginalized communities.


Through the Experimental Design Workshop, social scientists at Columbia have the opportunity to workshop the design of an experiment they have not yet fielded. Presenters will receive specific, actionable feedback on that design from other workshop participants. For inquiries about the Experimental Design Workshop Series, please contact Daniel Tadmon (daniel.tadmon@columbia.edu) or Maria Abascal (mca2113@columbia.edu).

Funding support for the Experimental Design Workshop Series is provided by the Paul F. Lazarsfeld Lecture Series, administered by INCITE, which features events and programming that embody and honor Lazarsfeld’s commitment to the improvement of methodological approaches that address concerns of vital cultural and social significance.
