06.20.16

College of Public Policy faculty, Dr. Francine Romero, associate dean and Dr. Meghan Augustyn, criminal justice assistant professor, recently received internal grant awards from the UTSA Vice President for Research Office's Internal Research Awards (INTRA) funding stream for their research activities.  Romero's proposal focuses on the "Political and Policy Dynamics of Municipal Annexation in Texas" and Augustyn's research will focus on "Using the National Crime Victimization Survey to better understand the determinants of help-seeking behavior among victims of intimate-partner and sexual assault."

The INTRA program is part of the UTSA Vice President for Research's coordinated efforts to promote research and scholarship of the highest quality.  This program offers experience in identifying and submitting applications to potential funding sources, provides preliminary data to support applications for extramural funding, and enhances scholarly and creative activities.  Proposals to this program are expected and encouraged for a broad range of research and creative activities.

These projects were funded (fully or in-part) by the University of Texas at San Antonio, Office of the Vice President for Research.
