Field to Field, Backbone to Boss: A Comparative Study of the Attitudes of High School African-American Males and Females Towards Collegein Different Socio-Economic Environment

Hometown: Norfolk, Virginia

Department: Government

Advisor: Claire McKinney

Statistics demonstrate that the current rate of African-American women attending college surpasses the rate of African-American men by nearly double. Very little research seeks to engage with this phenomenon. Resultantly, this project explores what societal expectations are being imposed upon African-American girls in comparison to African-American boys in order to understand how this impacts each gender's attitude towards college attendance and educational attainment.

All William & Mary Honors Fellowships fundraising supports the Charles Center Honors Fellowships Fund. Direct support for individual undergraduate research projects is distributed by the Roy R. Charles Center for Academic Excellence
