Social and Behavioral Sciences
This research explores the meaning of counterstorytelling for recent alumni of color who graduated from a predominately white institution (PWI) and participated in a research or scholarship program during their undergraduate studies. Utilizing in-depth, semi-structured interviews, the researcher collected descriptions from 11 alumni of color. An improved understanding of the meaning of counterstorytelling can enable educators to create academic programming that better supports students of color.
