THE INVISIBLE WALL: OVERCOMING SOCIAL OBSTRUCTIONS IN HIGHER EDUCATION
The effort and acumen required for students to pursue their dream of a college education is substantial, and the obstructions potentially preventing them from degree completion are many. Dr. Sansone will explore how these roadblocks can hinder the ability of vulnerable/diverse populations to traverse class structures, and share research indicating that when societies demand student success for all groups, we all achieve.
