Mar 31, 2019 12:15pm ‐ Mar 31, 2019 1:15pm


Description

The positive influence of family involvement on the academic achievement of youth is well documented and spans the K-12 pipeline, yet, there is limited understanding of the role of family in supporting college enrollment and completion for diverse Black students. This session features a qualitative study examining the role of family and identity in the experiences of immigrant and U.S.-born Black collegians. The session concludes with a discussion of implications relevant to precollege and college counselors.

  • Participants will be able to describe the familial context and engagement of ethnically diverse Black collegians across multiple points in the K-16 pathway: pre-college, college transition, and college completion.
  • Participants will be able to discuss the relationship between family, racial identity, ethnic identity, and the college experience of diverse Black students.
  • Participants will be able to co-construct implications for both pre-college and college counseling and support services to effectively engage both Black students and families in supporting educational achievement.
