Abstract

Abstract:

Motivated by the desire to disrupt marginalization, the purpose of this qualitative systematic literature review is to identify salient aspects of the Black student experience in undergraduate engineering programs. The authors identified and analyzed 19 germane research articles. For each article, they extracted various components of the study to identify key findings that illuminate the lived experiences of Black students and offer recommendations for improving student support efforts. Major themes were related to student persistence and performance, the impact of racial and gender identity, and supportive social networks.
