White Women, Racial Identity, and Learning about Racism in Graduate Preparation Programs
Robbins, Claire K.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n3 p256-268 2016
This study explored how White women learned about racism and White privilege in higher education and student affairs (HESA) master's degree programs. Drawn from a grounded theory, findings included 16 coursework and pre-professional experiences that generated racial dissonance, leading to "hunger" for more knowledge about racism and White privilege. White women's experiences were uneven across programs and demonstrated resistance to White privilege. Findings offer implications for HESA programs and recommendations for future research.
