Le, Tam; Gardner, Susan K.
Journal of College Student Development, v51 n3 p252-264 May-Jun 2010
In this study, we explored the experience of Asian international doctoral students in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields at one research-extensive university. We found that Asian international doctoral students in the STEM fields at this institution were often isolated from their peers and faculty, faced an array of issues including the lack of funding, the choice of advisor, and other departmental issues distinct to their international student status. Implications for policy and practice are included. (Contains 1 table.)
