Краткое описание

This study, drawn from a subset of qualitative data from the National Study of LGBTQ Student Success, explores the ecological systems [Bronfenbrenner, U., ed., Making Human Beings Human: Bioecological Perspectives on Human Development, Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage, 2005] of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer-identified (LGBTQ) students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors. Through open and axial coding of students' interview transcripts, we identified three primary themes: (1) LGBTQ students experience multiple STEM microsystems influenced by faculty, peers, and colleagues; (2) social science and humanities academic microsystems are perceived as safe places for LGBTQ students to be out; and (3) students' LGBTQ identities are central to their higher education experiences and influence peer microsystems in the context of exo- and macrosystem forces. Students' narratives demonstrate how LGBTQ STEM students experience their collegiate ecological systems and illuminate implications for practice and research.
