The Utility of Using Mixed-Methods and Intersectionality Approaches in Conducting Research on Filipino American Students' Experiences with the Campus Climate and on Sense of Belonging
Maramba, Dina C.; Museus, Samuel D.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n151 p93-101 Fall 2011
In this article, the authors discuss how merging mixed-methods and intersectional analyses can generate deeper and more authentic understandings of students' experiences within the campus climate and its relation to sense of belonging in college. They discuss overemphasis on one-dimensional analyses of campus climates and sense of belonging, emphasizing the importance of considering students' multiple identities in campus climate research and assessment. Then they discuss a mixed-methods intersectional analysis of campus climates and sense of belonging. In doing so, they highlight how the mixed-methods and intersectional approach helped uncover understandings that solely quantitative, exclusively qualitative, or one-dimensional analyses could not generate.
