Author
  • Marissa Klousie (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Explore the intersection of gender, race, and ethnicity in this interactive presentation examining these issues for female students of color. Collectively, the presenters and participants will identify barriers to achieving academic success at a predominantly white, male Institution for female students of color. In order to identify these barriers, we will discuss institutional characteristics and the hidden curriculum. The group will then consider familial, cultural, geographical, and socioeconomic factors. As a group we will identify potential consequences of the identified barriers and design strategies to individually and collectively overcome those barriers. Existing Iowa State University resources will be considered in the development of action plans to reduce barriers and enhance the success of female students of color.
