OS Honors

The Organizational Studies Honors Option is designed to enable advanced undergraduate students to gain experience in the design, conduct, and analysis of research on organizations and organizational behavior. The commitment, dedication, and resiliency of this years' OS Honors students was shown through their hard work on their research and theses.

Thesis Title –

A Jewish Call to Action: The Effect of Jewish Identity and Religiosity on Political Activism and Mobilization Among College Students at the University of Michigan

A little from Rachel...

“This experience helped me grow as a student, researcher, and person.

I was able to engage in meaningful conversations with my peers and gain insight into a topic I am passionate about. This project solidified my passion for Jewish social justice work, and I am so appreciative of the OS honors program for allowing me to pursue this research.'

Brianne VanDyke

Thesis Title –

Surviving and Serving During COVID-19: The Influence of Size and Diversification on Organizational Adaptation in Midwest Community Development Corporations

A little from Brianne...

“Through this experience, I grew not only as a student and a researcher but as an individual. I engaged in meaningful conversations, gained insight into the influence of organizational characteristics on adaptability, and witnessed the resilience of community organizations. Observing such resilience is what fuels my passion to pursue work in community-led development, and I will forever be grateful for my experiences in the OS honors program."
