SPS graduate student Angela Durán Real has presented findings regarding attitudes towards Study Abroad programs at a two-year college. She worked with Asha Esterberg Tran, a faculty mentor at South Seattle, to survey students at South Seattle Community College.
From the article, which may be read on the website for the University of Washington Simpson Center for the Humanities:
Angela shadowed Asha in Spanish classes over the past year, spending the fall and winter quarters getting to know students, building trust with them, and learning about the two-year-college environment. In the spring, the two conducted the survey, contributing to a national conversation on why students of color and low-income students are less likely to study abroad, and how programs might improve access.
As well as a Graduate Student in Hispanic Studies, Durán is a Mellon Fellow for Reaching New Publics in the Humanities and a fellow in the Certificate in Public Scholarship.
