Racial Microaggressions among Asian American and Latino/a Students at a Historically Black University
Palmer, Robert T.; Maramba, Dina C.
Journal of College Student Development, v56 n7 p705-722 Oct 2015
Research illustrates that the enrollments of Asian American and Latino/a students are increasing at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Nevertheless, research on how these students experience the institutional climates of HBCUs is nonexistent; hence, we sought to explore the college-choice process and perceptions of campus climate for Asian American and Latino/a students at HBCUs. One of the salient themes that emerged from this study was participants' experiences with racial microaggressions at a HBCU. This article discusses those experiences and concludes by providing implications for institutional practice and future research.
