The TKC Small Research Grant was established to promote and encourage research involvement focused on technology-related topics and concerns. The grant itself is designed to assist in the execution of promising technology-related research that has the potential to inform the practice of student affairs administrators. Additionally, the recipient of this award receives up to $300 to support their research project. The TKC is pleased to award this year’s Small Research Grant to Charlie Potts.

Charlie currently serves as the Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Residential Life at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota and is currently working on his dissertation toward his EdD at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. His current research focuses on the influence that social media use has on male college students’ gender identity and gender performance. Specifically, Charlie is examining how college men understand their masculinity and how they think about their social media use in hopes of providing insight into how college men’s actual behavior on social media compares to their self-described behavior on social media.

We are very excited to recognize Charlie for his current research surrounding male college students and social media and wish him the best of luck on the completion of his EdD.

Congratulations to Charlie for being the recipient of the Small Research Grant!
