In this presentation: Using Intersectional Frameworks to Understand and Support College Students, Dr. Annemarie Vaccaro, Associate Dean and Professor in the College of Education and Professional Studies at the University of Rhode Island (URI), will discuss the importance of adopting intersectional frameworks with college students. The presentation will draw from seminal literature as well as selected findings from her own scholarship. Powerful student quotes will help the audience understand how intersections of race, sexuality, gender, ability, and class shape academic and co-curricular life for college students. Dr. Vaccaro will invite session attendees to consider how intersectionality might inform their daily work at Cabrillo College.
