Dr. Kimberli Huster, Director of the ESL program at the New York City Campus, successfully defended her dissertation last week at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  Entitled, "Suspended between Languages: Biliterate Voices of Hmong Generation 1.5 University Women," Dr. Huster conducted a qualitative study of 13 Hmong Generation 1.5 women with the goal of exploring the educational, social, cultural, and personal experiences that combine to create the situation in which long-term immigrant students who are born in the U.S. and complete all of their education in English arrive in the college classroom while still in the process of learning English.
