Eunyoung Kim's research interests include college student development, minority students' college access and success, diversity and equity in higher education, sociology of education and international education. Kim's research focuses on the intersection of social and cultural capital in college aspirations and pursuits and identity formation among underrepresented and marginalized students. Currently, she is exploring how the relationship between institutional capital, social class, and culture influences ethnic minority immigrant students' college choice, college transition experiences and ethnic identity development. In another line of inquiry, her work examines how minority students negotiate their cultural, career and academic identity during the transition from secondary to postsecondary education, and how educational institutions plays a role in shaping the educational experiences of minority students.
