Microaggressions are subtle interactions that stereotype, insult or invalidate individuals in the course of their everyday lives. Microaffirmations are experiences that nurture an individual’s sense of belonging, success and well-being.

Rosalie Rolón Dow, an associate professor in the School of Education and the Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Diversity, conducted a project to explore the experiences of racially minoritized graduate and undergraduate students on UD’s campus with microaggressions and microaffirmations in their daily interactions in academic and social spaces.

Join the UD Library for this lecture where Rolón Dow will share what she discovered, including how both microaggressions and microaffirmations take form on a University campus and how they work in tandem to shape perceptions of campus climate.
