Theme: Microaggressions: Conceptual, Research, and Practice/Intervention Implications; Freedom of Expression and Race: Considerations, Tensions, and Contradictions
Project Title: Tell It Like It Is: Student Stories of Racial Interactions and Campus Climate
Grantee: Rosalie Rolón-Dow, Associate Professor of Education at the University of Delaware
Grant Period: January-June 2018
The Tell It Like It Is study at the University of Delaware explores microaggressions and microaffirmations experienced by minoritized graduate and undergraduate students in the course of their everyday lives. The project explores the nature of these experiences and the ways they influence perceptions of campus racial climate. This project will advance the dissemination of Tell It Like It Is project findings by initiating the development of a digital audio archive for project stories, preparing an in-house report focused on the experiences of graduate students and presenting the research at an education professional conference.
