This keynote lecture, Black Students in Higher Education: Disparities, Challenges, and Triumphs, will highlight statistics and research and scholarship related to the state of Black students in higher education. Topics will include the participation and achievement of Black college students and contemporary issues such as implicit bias, campus climate, racial microaggressions, stereotype threat, and sense of belonging.

Dr. Lane is an assistant professor of higher education and student affairs (HESA) in the department of Leadership, Counseling, Adult, Career & Higher Education (LCACHE) at the University of South Florida. She received her PhD in Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education with a graduate certificate in Urban Education from Michigan State University (MSU).

Dr. Lane’s research agenda broadly examines diversity, equity, and inclusion in postsecondary education with the objective of advancing inclusive and transformative policies and practices. Her primary research strand investigates the experiences and outcomes of underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Using qualitative methodologies, she has explored access and success for underserved students of color in STEM and STEM intervention programs. This line of research also seeks to understand the nuances and complexities of participation and persistence in these fields and develop new models for explaining such phenomena. Her secondary research strand focuses on the participation and achievement of Black students and professionals in higher education. She is the PI or co-PI on several grant-funded research projects including the national Black Doctoral Women Study (BDWS), the Women in Engineering Study (WIES), and Bulls-Engineering Youth Experience for Promoting Relationships, Identity Development, & Empowerment (Bulls-EYE PRIDE). 

Dr. Lane has presented her research at major conferences including American Educational Research Association (AERA), Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE), ACPA-College Student Educators International (ACPA), and the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE). Due to her research program, involvement in professional associations, and civic engagement, she has also been the recipient of several honors. Her recent awards include the 2018 ACPA Emerging Scholar designee, 2017 McKnight Junior Faculty Fellow, 2017 ACPA Advocate award, 2015 Asa G. Hilliard III and Barbara A. Sizemore Fellow (AERA), 2014 King-Chavez-Parks Future Faculty Fellow (MSU), and a National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) Emerging Diversity Scholar.

Prior to becoming a faculty member, Dr. Lane served in a number of administrative roles and settings including residence life, multicultural engineering programs, TRIO programs, MSU’s Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative, Wayne County Community College District’s Educational Affairs and Distance Learning, and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education.

Everyone is welcome! Bring a friend! We look forward to seeing YOU there.
