Student Success in Community Colleges: The Effect of Intercultural Leadership and Relationships
Johnson, Michael
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Azusa Pacific University
This study surveyed 239 community college students from Southern California to determine if the role of faculty and staff advisors of student clubs and organizations of intercultural, multicultural, and ethnic origin affected student outcomes in multicultural competence and career goals. These students participated in 42 different culturally and ethnically diverse student organizations from 12 different campuses. Multiple regression analyses identified faculty/staff advisors characteristics and how those characteristics enhanced the students' multicultural awareness and career goals. The results of this study confirm the idea that faculty/staff advisors indeed enhance student goals. The student participation in these organizations also promotes multicultural competence and shows that the cultivation of the multicultural competence has a significant impact in promoting career goals.
