Nicole Corley’s research focuses on the academic experiences of Black students from single-mother homes. Corley’s research explores the intersections of resilience, resistance, and racial socialization as a means to better understand the academic experiences of black students and their families. Her research departs from the deficit orientation, or disparity data, that focuses on underachievement, toward an understanding of the factors and processes that contribute to the strengths and academic success of black students.
