"What's Going On?": We’re Here Too: How Student Leaders of Color Find Belonging
This event is in the past.
Finding a sense of belonging can be more challenging for Students of Color compared to their white peers, especially at predominantly white institutions. This session will share the findings from a qualitative dissertation study interviewing Student Leaders of Color. Their lived experiences reflected the marginalization and assimilation pressure they experience daily, in addition to the intense weight they feel to act as a role models for other Students of Color. From their stories, we can learn how to better support all Students of Color, particularly those who choose to serve as leaders on our campus.
Facilitated by: Katie Beaulieu, Ed.D. | Associate Director of Operations, Student Center
