Dr. Barb Hamilton-Hinch is an Assistant Professor in the School of Health & Human Performance at Dalhousie University. Dr. Hamilton-Hinch is interested in hearing from students about the benefits of culturally specific programs they’ve participated in. There are few studies on the experiences of students of African descent in post-secondary education. Ultimately, this study will work towards improving the success of African Nova Scotian students, families, and communities in post-secondary education.
The ILA (Imhotep’s Legacy Academy) and PLANS (Promoting Leadership in health for African Nova Scotians) have been selected as the programs of interest.
You can participate in the study if …
You self-identify as a person of African descent
You took part in ILA and/or PLANS programming, as a participant, volunteer and/or staff member**
You are above 18 years of age
** You could be either a past or current participant, and do not necessarily have to be enrolled in post-secondary education. Your participation in ILA/PLANS programming in whatever capacity is sufficient.
If eligible, your participation will involve taking part in one focus group session and/or an individual interview if you prefer to have one-on-one dialogue. Each session will be up to one hour and sessions are set to take place starting in July. A stipend will be provided, and transportation needs can be accommodated.
