A philosophy for life and education.

experiences of Student Activists 

The purpose of this study is to better understand the experiences of student activists engaged in activism and resistance related to racism, sexism, homophobia, and other identity-related oppressions.  We would like to better understand student activists' experiences to help people who work on college campuses better support student activists. This research will be shared at various professional development conferences for university faculty, staff, and administrators.  We will work to maintain participant confidentiality by using pseudonyms to identify participants and their institutions.  

We will be conducting interviews in person or via GoogleHangout, Skype, FaceTime, or phone.  We anticipate interviews will last between 45 and 75 minutes.
