Is Grad School for Me? Demystifying Process for First-Gen BIPOC Students

uConnect Logo

Is Grad School for Me? Demystifying Process for First-Gen BIPOC Students was originally published on The First Gen Coach.

Grad school can take a toll on mental and physical health, particularly for women of color. Yet there is no denying that it can also play a role in advancing economic mobility. That’s why this episode is all about the good, the bad, and the ugly of graduate school, and what First-Gen BIPOC students, especially First Gen Low Income BIPOC students, need to know if they are thinking about it. My guests, Dr. Yvette Martinez-Vu and Dr. Miroslava Chavez-Garcia, talk about their book ‘Is Grad School for Me?’ and their journeys to addressing such a highly-needed topic in our community. Whether or not you’re considering grad school, listen to learn how you can leverage any level of education to advance your career.
