Identifying barriers to ethnic/racial minority students’ participation in graduate physics
written by Geraldine L. Cochran, Theodore Hodapp, and Erika E. Alexander Brown
Historically, access to education in the U.S. has not been equitable. Furthermore, intersectionality, the interaction of multiple identities, results in educational experiences that vary widely for diverse groups of students with implications for the recruitment of future students. To better understand barriers to ethnic/racial minority students participating in graduate education a study has been conducted through the APS Bridge program, a program designed to increase the number of ethnic/racial minorities earning PhDs in physics. In phase one of this study, we analyzed student responses to an application question regarding why they chose not to apply to graduate physics programs. To further understand the barriers identified in the first phase of this study, we interviewed nine participants in the 2016 Cohort of the APS Bridge program. The results of this study have implications for a variety of stakeholders interested in broadening participation in graduate physics education.
