Alberta M. Gloria
Position title: Professor, Counseling Psychology
Dr. Gloria has several research teams exploring the educational processes and coping strategies that facilitate academic persistence and educational wellness for students of color. Studies are conceptualized using the Psychosociocultural approach to academic persistence in which the “whole student” is considered within the context of the university environment. Central to her work is the concept of creation and maintenance of “academic families” in which students find cultural congruity, personal and professional reflection and validation, and dimensionalized connections to persist within their educational contexts. For more information, see her faculty website.
