In September 2020, GlobalMindEd in collaboration with the Equity Project interviewed 102 students across the nation at 47 different higher education institutions. Their voices, laid on in the first Student Speak report, gave us great insights about how racially minoritized students have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-related digital, personal, health, professional, familial, and emotional/social challenges. From this group, the GlobalMindED team convened 25 students to serve as Peer-to-Peer Ambassadors. These extraordinary student leaders, representing colleges and universities from around the country were invited to engage their own peers in answering key questions about their experiences in today’s virtual/ remote learning environments. Each Ambassador was challenged to get at least 10 of their peers to complete a survey that explored the lived experiences of students during this complex time in history.Download Student Speak Peer-to-Peer Survey Results
