When schools focus narrowly on issues of student achievement and other district priorities, they may limit their school’s potential in meeting the diverse needs of students, families, and communities.

In this research, we found that Black PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in engineering and computing departments framed the stress and strain of their STEM doctoral experiences through the lens of race.
