*****My Ph.D. dissertation was on statistical/mathematical regression modeling on first generation, low-income, and underrepresented students in higher education (TRIO Student Support Services).  The research explores the variation of responses (denoted by varying academics performance(s) measured in GPA) resonated from theoretically the exact same stimuli (services such as advising, tutoring….), and how the student’s race, gender, and socio-economic status may independently play a role in cognitive processes of these multiple stimuli (various services).  The study also discusses the individual differences within the same population groups and how multiple combinations of these simultaneous identities of race, class, and gender (ex. Student is not low-income  on day one, female on day two , first generation college student on day three and so on.  These identities are simultaneous) may impact the student's cognitive processes and learning behavior.  The purpose of the study was to pin point and optimize the most utilized and most “effective” services provided by TRIO SSS in order to deliver more efficient and effective combinations of services accounting race, gender, and class in to the equation.
