“What Are We?” A Narrative Study of the “Trickiness” of Identity for Asian American College Students
Acknowledged as neither Black nor White, Asian Americans have occupied an often marginalized yet nonetheless racialized position in the U.S. racial landscape, which has disguised much of their lived experience as racial beings. Using intersectionality as a theoretical framework, this narrative inquiry study sought to understand how Asian American college students see themselves as racial beings by exploring the role and salience of race and its intersections with other social identities. The study’s findings indicate paths for future research on Asian American identity development and suggest implications for supporting Asian American students and for developing and integrating intersectional approaches in order to create more socially just and inclusive institutions.

“The New Traditional Student”
Who exactly is a “traditional student” in higher education? While colleges and university target their enrollment to students between the ages of 18-23, the growing majority of college students continue to be first generation and are often above the age of 24. This quantitative study uses critical feminist policy analysis to challenge the idea of who a traditional student is, while centering women who work, care for dependents, and have high academic achievement.
