Description

"Participants will engage with findings and implications of two research projects that explore environments promoting academic and personal success among students of color in a Predominantly White Institution (PWI). These environments can be described as cultural counterspaces that, like the warm room in a cold house, provide alternative opportunities for students of color to be comfortable and supported within an otherwise challenging campus environment. Participants will identify key concepts, programs, and practices that promote the success of underrepresented students."
