Event Details

Untangling the complexities of being a doctoral student of color with a critical epistemology in a HESA program:

An interactive session

This lunch and learn will focus on a new study exploring the experiences of doctoral students of color in Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA) programs who have critical epistemologies. Martinez-Aleman, Pusser,Bensimon and associates (2015) most recently argued for a critical approach to higher education research and praxis. However, it is unclear whether HE- SA doctoral programs are supporting students of color who have these worldviews. Attendees will be invited to “dive into” some of the study data in order to uncover and discuss the emerging themes. The session will provide: 1) a brief overview of the literature, 2) an opportunity to share experiences, and 3) engage with the study data on the topic allowing attendees to provide their own insights and understandings of the data.
