Dr. Sandra Graham from UCLA completed a talk on entitled “Race, Ethnicity and Social Adjustment of Adolescents: How (not if) School Diversity Matters” on Friday April 24th, 2015 for the Curry Research Lectureship Series.
Talk abstract: In this presentation I discuss recent research on the effects of school racial/ethnic diversity on the psychosocial outcomes of ethnic minority adolescents in middle school and across the transition to high school. Drawing on data from two large longitudinal studies in California, I test specific hypotheses about the social processes, such as formation of cross-ethnic friendships , development of complex social identities, and reduced feelings of vulnerability, that help explain the positive effects of greater school diversity. For both research and policy, the question should no longer be if school diversity matters, but rather how it matters.
