This study investigated the educational experiences of ten Asian American undergraduate women who were struggling academically and were placed on academic probation by their college. It was designed in the qualitative tradition to give voice to a population that traditionally has not had that option. The goal of the research was to gain an understanding of both the common and unique experiences of these 10 women as they related to their higher education struggles. The project proposed that institutions of higher learning are lacking in both their recognition and understanding of poorly performing Asian American students and that there is a subsequent lack of programs and services for these students
Participation in the study was limited to Chinese and Korean undergraduate women who self identified as either first generation or 1.5 generation Asian Americans. Data were collected by means of a three tiered semi-structured interview protocol. The study was influenced by the body of literature dealing with various aspects of the model minority stereotype (e.g. Fong, 2002: Lee, 1999; Nakanishi, 2000; Suzuki, 2002; Yeh, 2002)
In this study, the model minority construct was shown to have influence on the perceptions of the higher education experience even among students who were not familiar with the term as such. Pre-entrance perceptions of the university, familial expectations as related to academic success and choice of major, developmental and mental health issues were all found to have impacted the academic journey of the participants
