Assimilation and Subversion on Campus: A Critical Discourse Analysis of Students' Experiences of Race and Institutional Resources

Garrett D. Hoffman, Fernando Rodriguez, May Yang, Rebecca Ropers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article examines how institutional programs and services intended to support students of color are discursively framed and how undergraduate students draw on these discourses to construct narratives of their college experiences. Our qualitative data highlight assimilative and subversive institutional spaces, which support students in challenging or becoming successful within mainstream academic contexts. We argue that both assimilative and subversive support spaces serve important functions for students of color on today's college campuses.
