NJIT Assistant Director for Leadership and Diversity To Speak at AADA Summer Conference

Sherlene Ayala, assistant director for Leadership and Diversity, will be presenting “Graduate School Transitions: Experiences for Students of Color” at the AADA  Summer Conference 2013.  Graduate student retention is an issue that has received tremendous attention in literature, particularly at the doctoral level.  There are some areas, however, regarding graduate student retention that have not received adequate consideration, including experiences of specific minority groups and students in pursuit of a master’s degree.  This study aims to explore the factors that impact the graduate experience of students of color in a master’s degree program.
