2020 NASPA Annual Conference

Asian American Racial Microaggressions and the Impact on Sense of Belonging and Student Success (ID 176)

Racial microaggressions are an every-day experience for many students of color; however, not enough focus has been given to the Asian American student experience. Using the theoretical frameworks of Kuh, Hurtado, and Museus, the presenter will share qualitative research findings on racial microaggressions experienced by Asian American students and how they impact a sense of belonging and student success. The presenter will define racial microaggressions, describe the types encountered on campus, illustrate how these affect the perspectives of students, and share concrete suggestions on how faculty, staff, and college campuses can better serve Asian American students.
