Irrelation as a Social Construct for African American College Women on a Predominantly White Campus
Sims, Guy A.
College Student Journal, v42 n2 p691-702 Jun 2008
Irrelation is a term used to describe the concept in which an individual or group functions within a social setting without a high level of relationship or connection with other members of that community. This study examined the social experiences of African American female students at a predominantly white institution finding that in several areas of student life African American female students persisted to graduation without necessarily establishing informal social connections within the university community.
