Carolina Cultivation Advancing Narratives Speaker Series: “Whose Culture Has Capital? Let’s Talk About Class in the Academy”
January 27, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Diversity and Student Success in the Graduate School’s Carolina Cultivation Advancing Narratives Speaker Series will present “Whose Culture Has Capital? Let’s Talk About Class in the Academy” with Dr. Shonda Goward.
This talk will address current scholarship on economically challenged college students interwoven with the speaker’s personal journey from the working class as a first-generation college student to doctoral degree holder. We will also discuss how selective institutions can use frameworks such as Dr. Tara Yosso’s cultural wealth model to create an environment where students are affirmed in their backgrounds and are valued.
Shonda Goward, EdD, is the Director for Academic Success for the Carolina Covenant, which provides a debt-free education to UNC students that qualify. She is an award-winning administrator with nearly 15 years of experience in higher education.
