The Neglected Minority: Microaggression Experiences Of International Students, Shaohua (Linda) Pei, Ran Li, Linda Hagedorn

Linda Serra Hagedorn

During the 2015–16 academic year, over 4000 international students studied at Iowa State University (ISU), representing 11 percent of the overall student population. This presentation will address how international students, the neglected minority, experience daily microaggressions on campus. We will further analyze how these experiences may impact their overall satisfaction of the university. Further, we will conclude with implications and suggestions on how to promote cultural awareness and inclusiveness for international students.
