Legacy Trail: Photovoice of African American/Black Women CES Doctoral Graduates' Persistence

Oct 20 2023
11:35 AM - 12:50 PM

With AA/Black students’ doctoral completion rates accumulating at 6.1%, this study investigated and revealed “inherited” behaviors of persistence that could be applied to attrition universally.
