Patterns of Black Graduate Students' Concerns in a Black College.
Chandras, Kananur V.
Black graduate students (N=30) in a predominantly black state college in the southern part of the United States were surveyed regarding their personal aspirations and personal concerns. The aspirations of these black graduate students revolve around employment, a decent standard of living, owning a house, and having modern conveniences. Aspirations less typically mentioned include self-development or self-improvement and acceptance by others. Ill-health, accident, or death are the major forces identified as having a possible disruptive influence regarding attainment of aspirations. Several students mentioned a belief that benefits to be derived from their education would be enhanced if they did not have pressing financial problems. Additionally, they believed many operations of the college were decided in favor of administrative convenience rather than for the benefit of students. (Author)
