Reversing Disconnectedness Among African American Graduate Students at Predominantly White Institutions

Take a deep dive into the lived experiences of African American graduate students enrolled at a predominantly white institution (PWI). Join presenter Dr. Frederick Engram, Jr., an expert of graduate enrollment and diversity, equity, and inclusion, as he explores the experiences of graduate students lacking connection to their institution, and how institutional and systemic racism affects the ability for African American graduate students to create space to persist. Persistence allows these students to complete their degrees and feel a sense of connectedness to the institution. With a gap in literature that focuses on master’s-level African American learners, it can be difficult for the gatekeepers at PWIs to recognize this urgent need for change.

In this webinar, participants learn about:
  1. Identifying and reversing harm
  2. Reducing racial battle fatigue
  3. Reducing cultural taxation
  4. Eliminating internal biases that become projections
  5. Understanding White-manning
