Grzanka Creates Community for Intersectionality
In 2015, Patrick Grzanka was looking for a way to bring together researchers on campus who study how social categorizations such as race, class, and gender, “intersect” in the experiences of marginalized groups. With the help of the Office of Research and Engagement, the Intersectionality Community of Scholars was created.

Intersectionality and High School

Cecile Gadson, graduate student in psychology, studies the experiences of black adolescent girls in high school and the microaggressions they face every day, specifically at the intersection of gender and race. 
"My hope is to shine a light on black girls’ experiences that are often lost when we just look at race or gender," said Gadson
Learn more about Gadson's research in this month's Graduate Student Spotlight.
