According to a 2019 report by the American Council on Education, the percentage of students of color in the undergraduate student population has increased by over 15% over the last two decades. Despite this tremendous growth in access and opportunity, many students of color do not feel supported on their campuses. A black student at UofSC Columbia recently wrote an op-ed in the student newsletter sharing the feelings of isolation he experienced and the microaggressions he encountered during his first year. Given the climate of increased access without increased support for this student population, this presentation seeks to equip advisors with strategies for better meeting the needs of our students from underrepresented backgrounds by leveraging research literature on Cultural Capital, Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, and Appreciative Advising.
