Hello! I hope this email finds you well.

We are conducting a study on the experiences of women of color in Counselor Education doctoral programs at Predominately White Institutions (PWIs). This study is for dissertation research.

This quantitative research study aims to shed light to how (1) level of hope, (2) feelings of connectedness to the campus community, and (3) the attitudes, perceptions, and experiences regarding race relations and racial justice shapes the coping strategies used by women of color as they navigate their campuses and doctoral programs. Completion of the instruments will take approximately 20 minutes. The questions seek to understand the experiences, perceptions, and the coping strategies these women use while pursing a doctoral degree in Counselor Education at a PWI. It is our hope that you will send this email to those that meet the criteria below.

To be selected for participation in the study, individuals must be a woman of color currently enrolled in, OR a graduate of, a doctoral program in Counselor Education at a PWI in the United States.
·  For current students: Eligible participants should be women of color who have completed at least one semester of doctoral education and have enough coursework to accumulate a cumulative GPA.
·  For graduates: Eligible participants should be women of color who successfully completed doctoral education. While there is not a limit on graduation year, participants should be able to clearly recall their experiences during doctoral education.
For those who choose to complete the study, and complete the study in full, they will be entered into a random draw for a $50.00 Amazon gift card. Please note that confidentiality will be protected per IRB and ethical guidelines, and participants have the right to withdraw from participation in the study at any time without penalty. The link for the study (IRB #00003330) is provided here: https://hoodpsychology.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cwkuTITpjZsGSR7

This study serves a significant purpose in understanding the experiences, perceptions, and coping strategies used by women of color in Counselor Education doctoral programs at PWIs. This study also aims to fill an important gap in the literature. It is our hope that you will share this email with potential participants that meet the criteria above. For more information about the study, please contact Atiya R. Smith and/or Kathryn Z. Douthit, Ph.D.

Thank you in advance for sharing this email.
