Since intervention, however, the enrollment growth rate among Black males (60%) exceeded that of Black females (40%) (NCES, 2008). Needless to say, this good  Read more...

Since intervention, however, the enrollment growth rate among Black males (60%) exceeded that of Black females (40%) (NCES, 2008). Needless to say, this good news was is welcomed by many. However, as Cole & Guy-Sheftall (2003) have pointed out, it may be misguided to assume that improving the status of black men will single-handedly solve all the complex problems facing African American communities. Are we indirectly neglecting Black females? And what of their future? The purpose of Black Female Undergraduates on Campus is to identify both successes and challenges faced by Black female students accessing and matriculating through institutions of higher education. In illuminating the interactive complexities between persons and place, this volume is aimed toward garnering an understanding of the educational trajectories and experiences of Black females, independent of and in comparison to their peers. Special attention is paid to women pursuing careers in the high demand fields of teacher education and STEM."@en ;
