About Ashley

Anglin's research examines civic engagement and its relationship to youth positive development, ethnic identity, and immigration status, and how community participation can be fostered in youth through educational opportunities such as service-learning and civics education. She is also interested in exploring various forms of community capital – including social, political, cultural, human, built, and economic capital – and how researchers can work collaboratively with communities to create policies and programs that support sustainable and meaningful community development.
