In this enlightening episode, we dive deep into an often-silent challenge faced by plus-sized students in the realm of higher education. Despite more than two-thirds of adults in the US being over a size 14, there exists an underlying bias against students based on their body size, overshadowing their academic achievements. From unsettling findings at Cal State Long Beach and Mt. St. Vincent, revealing stereotypes about GPA perceptions and team collaboration preferences, to tangible obstacles like inaccessible campus resources, the gravity of the situation is undeniable. Join us as we shed light on the firsthand experiences of these students, engage with researchers unraveling the complexities of weight stigma in academia, and explore solutions that can pave the way for a truly inclusive campus culture. Dive into a discussion on the tangible effects of this bias and the steps universities can take to rectify this deep-rooted prejudice.
