Research and Equity Scholarship Institute’s Digital Narratives

diverse college students
The SDSU Research and Equity Scholarship Institute on Student Trajectories in Education (RESISTE) is currently working on the ED SYSTEMS project which focuses on students who began at community colleges and minority serving institutions. The institute is directed by Dr. Felicia Herrera-Villareal, an assistant professor in our Department of Administration, Rehabilitation, and Postsecondary Education (ARPE), and is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

One part of the project is highlighting the stories of about 50 students who have successfully navigated community college Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) pathways. The “RES Institute” recognizes how much there is to learn from the voices of underrepresented students who have not only succeeded in STEM but have contributed to the field  through their unique strengths and cultural knowledge.

Take a look at some of those narratives at the institute’s Digital Narratives webpage.
