Research Project Abstract

Asians in the U.S. have long been labeled a model minority. Previous studies found that the biases and stereotypes placed on Asian students can positively and negatively influence them. Therefore, it is crucial to examine how the stereotype influence Asian students and whether or not if the stereotype has different effects on Asian international and Asian American students. By examining Asian students’ academic experiences at predominantly white universities, we can better demonstrate that U.S. higher educational institutions are still in need of faculty training on racial biases; moreover, only after examining these issues can U.S. educational institutions better work towards diminishing the often overlooked or invisible racial stereotypes.
