Dr. Stephens published an article in the Social Science Journal

Dr. Cristina Stephens and Elena Gheorghiu, graduate student in KSU's PhD in International Conflict Management Program, published the paper "Working with 'The Others': Immigrant Academics’ Acculturation Strategies as Determinants of Perceptions of Conflict at Work" in the Social Science Journal.

Using a sample of foreign-born professors at institutions of higher education in the United States, this empirical study examines how different types of acculturation strategies, including assimilation, integration, separation and marginalization, affect immigrant academics’ perceptions of conflict in the workplace.
