Obtaining a PhD is a process filled with obstacles to traverse. As a Black man in the academy, learning to navigate these obstacles emanate with additional elements to master. This presentation explores the experiences of Black men at different stages in their journeys and how thriving during the first year was important to their stories of success. Participants will learn coping strategies, and faculty and staff who work with Black PhD students can learn ways to support their students.
