Diversity in higher education; v.12


Scholars of education offer empirical studies identifying both successes and challenges faced by black female students accessing and matriculating through institutions of higher education, with special attention to those pursuing careers in the high-demand field of teacher education and in disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Among their topics are analyzing the female advantage in college access among African Americans, gender differences in self-actualization, identifying the unique experiences of domestic and international black student-athletes, STEM careers options for African American high-achieving girls, and African American women as STEM educators.
