Title of presentation: I Believe in the Little Words: A Story of Validation By Dr. Nuria M. Sanchez

Date of Presentation: May 12, 2021

Time of Presentation: 2:00pm - 3:00pm (Mountain Time)

Description of presentation: "Sometimes all it takes is the little words to validate a student for them to take the next step toward their goals. This was the case in one community college study that used validation theory to influence STEM persistence for women and minoritized students. The presenter will share tenets of Rendon’s (1994) Validation theory, validating advising practices, provide an opportunity to reflect on validation and identify forms of validation to apply in participants' own roles."

Short Bio: "Dr. Sanchez has served in higher education for over 5 years. Prior to that she served as a middle school language arts teacher for 3 years. Her research has focused on persistence factors for students in English as a Second language classes (ESL), women, Native students, undocumented Latinx and most recently women and minoritized students in STEM."
