The Minority Student in Higher Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
Floyd, Nubra Elaine
A bibliography of 238 journal articles, most of which are annotated, is presented that covers various aspects of the status of the minority student in American higher education. In addition, a list of research studies on college student attrition and persistence is included, since many of these studies may have special implications for low income and ethnic minority students. The publication dates of the articles range from 1957 to 1981, but most were published during the past 5 years. An outline is presented to locate references and article summaries by topical areas. On background and family, the following specific topics are covered: the structure of relations, social and economic status, parents' values and attitudes, students' values and attitudes, and community service orientation. Other topics that are covered include: enrollment patterns, testing and admissions, minority student adjustment, the student college relationship, student achievement, special academic programs, the status of minority students in graduate and professional schools, faculty and administrators, the residential experience, social life, social support programs, and counseling and personal support programs. Research on college student persistence and attrition is cited that covers institutional environment factors affecting minorities, background and family factors, academic achievement factors, and social and personality factors.
