Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count, this issue examines the differing developmental needs and enrollment and persistence patterns of Achieving the Dream students by gender, with a focus on male students of color. The data show females in Achieving the Dream colleges, regardless of race, were less likely than males to enroll full time during their first term, and they were referred to developmental education with higher frequency than males. But females who enrolled full time accumulated more credits, completed a larger percentage of the credits they attempted and attained higher GPAs than male students. The gender gap is wider for students of color. The results indicate that it may be worth examining options for separate intervention strategies designed specifically for males and females. Colleges also may consider specific strategies for male students of color. (Contains 4 figures, and 7 endnotes.)
