An article on "Racial Prejudice in College Students: A Cross-sectional Study" written by Penn State Shenango associate professor of human development and family studies (HDFS) William McGuigan has been accepted for publication in The College Student Journal.

The article was co-authored by Breanna Gassner, a recent Shenango campus HDFS graduate, who is currently attending graduate school at Bowling Green University. The article revealed how completing the four-year HDFS program at Shenango campus significantly reduced the student’s racial prejudice.
