Being (Dis)Engaged in Educationally Purposeful Activities: The Influences of Student and Institutional Characteristics.
Hu, Shouping; Kuh, George D.
The self-reported experiences of 50,883 undergraduates at 123 institutions were analyzed using a nonlinear hierarchical model to identify individual and institutional characteristics associated with low and high levels of student engagement in educationally purposeful activities. Men, White students, and students at public institutions were more likely to be "disengaged" when compared with women, African Americans, Hispanics, and American Indians and students at private colleges. Student socioeconomic status and academic preparation had positive influences on association with more engaged groups. Individual student perceptions of certain aspects of the institutional environment and aggregate perceptions of the institutional environment had contradictory effects on student engagement.
