Enge, Kari E.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Southern California
The goal of this study is to examine the impact Black alumni may have on the career development of African American undergraduate students attending predominantly White universities. The narratives presented in this study aim to highlight the mentoring process and to provide new perspectives on theories of social integration, particularly same-race mentoring relationships. The development of these relationships can have significant effects on the professional integration of African American students at predominantly White institutions. This study will identify how students who engage in same-race mentoring programs experience increased opportunity for career development.
