Overby to present at two conferences

The Media School Report • March 2, 2017

Media School doctoral student Katrina Overby will present her work at two upcoming conferences.

In collaboration with IU doctoral students Gloria Howell, Francesca White and Tiffany Campbell, Overby will present at the American College Personnel Association and the National Conference on Race & Ethnicity in American Higher Education.

Their collaborative research topic is the experiences of black female doctoral students at predominantly white institutions. Overby, Howell, White and Campbell plan to work with participants at the conferences in directing them to explore their identities and support networks both in their professional and personal lives.

The 2017 ACPA convention is March 26-29 in Columbus, Ohio, and the 2017 NCORE is May 30-June 3 in Fort Worth, Texas.
