Abstract

Over 30 million Americans, or approximately 20 percent of adults, have earned some college credit but no college degree, yet relatively little is known about this population. This phenomenological dissertation presentation explores how Black women community college graduates, who interrupted their enrollment at least twice, perceive their non–enrollment periods and overcame obstacles to persist toward degree completion. Through a gendered and racialized lens, concepts of meaning– making through transitions and persisting to college completion are discussed.

This phenomenological dissertation presentation explores how Black women community college graduates, who interrupted their enrollment at least twice, perceive their non–enrollment periods and overcame obstacles to persist toward degree completion. Through a gendered and racialized lens, concepts of meaning– making through transitions and persisting to college completion are discussed.
