Presenter- Dr. Ramon Goings, an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at Loyola University Maryland and winner of the 2019 Imogene Okes Award.
In higher education scholarship, the plight of Black male collegians is often discussed from a deficit perspective. While data suggests first-time Black male collegians have lower four- and six-year graduation rates than their peers, this data does not capture the Black men who return to college as adult learners and complete their degree. Thus, in this webinar the Dr. Ramon Goings, will present his research from his study on Black male adult learners that won the 2019 Imogene Okes Award for Outstanding Research in Adult Education which examines the transition experiences of Black male adult learners. Additionally, Dr. Goings will discuss recommendations for higher education administrators, student affairs practitioners, and faculty on how they can support the academic success of Black male adult learners in higher education.
