Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The study aimed at understanding students’ perspectives on university response to a racial microaggression on a campus. Responses were collected in the form of an online survey and analyzed using qualitative data analysis to identify themes from students’ perspective. Insights about how students processed the incident were gained. Although students were thankful of the university response, concern for another incident, and how leadership will equip students to handle situations lingers. Implications for educators are provided.
