Abstract
This qualitative study was to understand how African American female students persist in engineering. The broader impact of this study is that it will serve as a model that can be applied to better understand the authentic needs of other underrepresented groups in engineering. It can also lead to the creation of impactful intervention strategies to enhance their persistence. This investigative three-part dissertation consist of a narrative literature review to best examine current literature in the field, current experiences and how these experiences have been addressed; and two empirical studies that address how African American women persist and navigate engineering spaces.
