Taylor Withrow has made research a cornerstone of her time at the University of Georgia as she has explored her interests in law, criminal justice, and civil and human rights. A senior from Suwanee, Georgia, which is part of metro Atlanta, she is a CURO Honors Scholar through UGA’s Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities and the UGA Honors Program.

Her first research project looked at “identity development of multiracial individuals and the role race plays in social institutions such as education, employment and criminal justice,” she said. “My research allowed me to focus more on civil rights and further piqued my interest in the criminal justice system.”

She has continued to do research at UGA studying racial identity development, and her goal is to become an influential and compassionate lawyer.

“My passion is ensuring the rights and liberties of all persons while promoting equality and social justice,” Taylor said. “From an early age, I knew that I wanted to be a lawyer so that I could stand up for what was right, to be the voice for people who lack one.”’

Taylor was featured as a UGA Amazing Student at the end of August. Read more about her at
