Intersectionality: Tool for Transition to College

  • 2:00 PM – 2:55 PM
  • SYKES ROOM 255

Discusses intersectionality as a tool of transition to college by analyzing personal narratives. Students describe their individual narratives of their transition to college over a summer bridge program and the beginning of a fall semester. These students apply intersectionality to their experiences to reflect on the multiple identities they must navigate to develop a strong sense of self as a student.
