Research study opportunity offered

Submitted by Grizelda MacDonald

Grizelda MacDonald, a doctoral candidate in the College of Education, is seeking graduate students to participate with her dissertation research. The title of the research is "Multiracial Graduate Students' Lived Experiences in Higher Education." This is an opportunity for multiracial graduate students to share multiracial perspectives about their experiences.

The purpose of the study is to understand graduate multiracial students' lived experiences in higher education. The study also seeks to understand and to give voice to this increasing population's needs in higher education.

The criteria for participation in the study are: the graduate student self-identifies as a multiracial — two or more races — student; is currently enrolled in graduate study; and attends a land-grant institution.

The doctoral research will include a screening tool, a demographic questionnaire with a consent form. Additionally, the research will involve journal reflections and interviews, which will explore the lived experiences of multiracial graduate students on a land grant and predominantly white institution.

Please contact MacDonald at 785-532-7739 or grizmac1@k-state.edu if you would like to participate. Additionally, you can contact Doris Carroll, associate professor and MacDonald's advisor, for further information at 785-532-5941 or dcarroll@k-state.edu.
