Abstract

How a sense of belonging is developed in Black collegiate women is critical in understanding how practitioners can support them and how institutions can provide the financial resources necessary to ensuring their successful matriculation. As experiences of Black women in college continue to be added to the scholarship, this study uses sister circles to collect the narratives of Black women who participate in cultural student organizations. This study determined that when Black women join cultural student organizations, they are able to form intentional relationships, can initiate positive interactions with faculty and staff, will engage socially, and feel empowered racially. Through these experiences, they are able to develop a sense of belonging among each other
