ERIC Clearinghouse on Higher Education, Washington, DC.
This CRitical Issues Bibliography describes resources that provide an overview of the issues involved for Native American college students, a minority group that is among the least likely to attend college and one that has a low graduation rate. The bibliography concentrates on cultural influences that affect the participation and success of Native Americans in higher education and on issues related to the recruitment and retention of this underrepresented minority. The bibliography also highlights model programs that help some students succeed, and it concludes with literature that discuss the problems and progress Native American students are making in the health professions, science, mathematics, and engineering. The bibliography concludes with sections on directories and Internet resources useful to researchers studying Native Americans in higher education. The annotated bibliography describes 53 resources, of which only the 2 Internet resources are not available through the ERIC database. (SLD)
