*****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
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.
