Abstract

The purpose of this presentation is to highlight and allow a space for individuals to cover the terms “minorities” to students from “marginalized” backgrounds. We will guide the audience to further analyze the terminology that is describing vulnerable population of students. One of the major outcomes of this session is to have participants learn and understand the negative connotations with the term “minority.” During the session, audience members will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with one another and understand their position on the usage of the term minority. We hope to have the audience members leave the session with fruitful dialogue and become change agents by switching the deficit narrative on vulnerable populations.
