Description

Students with multiracial identity are an emergent population in higher education. This research uses interviews with eight multiracial undergraduate students to explore how identity integration impacts the way multiracial students navigate monoracial campuses academically and socially. The objectives of this research are 1) to explore the academic and social experiences of multiracial students at a predominantly White institution and 2) to determine the impact of multiracial identity integration on student outcomes related to sense of belonging, resiliency, and self-image. The findings of this study increase our understanding of how identity development relates to positive student outcomes in order that student affairs professionals can support multiracial students in more tailored ways.
