The Effect of School-Based Health Care on Adolescent Behavior and Mental Health

This paper looks at the effect of access to a School-Based Health Center on suspensions and dropouts, two metrics that may be strong proxies for adolescent mental health status. Using a difference-in-differences model with a propensity-score matched sample of control schools, I find that in California, access to a school-based health center decreases school-level suspension rates by around 1.4 percentage points within 3 years of the opening.

What You Don't Know Might Deter You: The Effect of Information Provision on Minority Retention in Undergraduate Economics

Through an RCT at a large research university, I find that providing undergraduate students in an introductory Economics course with information about potential careers, income, research topics, and diversity in the field of Economics increases the likelihood of enrolling in a subsequent Economics course for underrepresented minority students by around 12.3 percentage points and that the information induces primarily lower-performing students to enroll.
