Dr. Ramsey Invited to Speak on the Gender Gap in Higher Education at NAAAS National Conference in Dallas

Dr. James Ramsey

Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies James Ramsey, Ph.D., program director of the First-Year Experience Program at Medaille College, has been selected to speak on the gender gap in higher education at the National Association of African American Studies (NAAAS) national conference in Dallas on February 12.

Dr. Ramsey’s presentation, “Assessing the Gender Gap in Higher Education,” will examine the implications of racial, ethnic and gender gap disparities in enrollment and degree attainment at institutions of higher education. The presentation will also focus on the manufacture of academic achievement and degree attainment for some, and the premature attrition, sub-par degree attainment and limited post-secondary participation for others.

Sponsored by the NAAAS, the conference will run February 11-16.
