Language Diversity in Educational Settings

Speaker/Presenter: Stephany Dunstan, North Carolina State University
Location: 233 Gatton B&E

Dunstan is the NCSU Assistant Director of the Office of Assessment. Her research examines dialect as an element of diversity that shapes the college experience, particularly for speakers of non-standardized dialects of English. Dunstan and Jaeger (2015) found that students from rural, Southern Appalachia felt that their use of a regional dialect put them at a disadvantage in the college classroom.
