An Examination of the Influence of Social and Academic Integration on Multiracial College Student Persistence
Spicer-Runnels, Ashley D.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
This study was designed to test Tinto's theory of college student integration by measuring the social and academic integration of multiracial students. The participants for the current study consisted of a convenience sample of college students (n = 173) classified as seniors during the Fall 2012 semester at a mid-sized public four-year institution in Texas. The researcher collected pertinent demographic data and used the Institutional Integration Scale-Revised (IIS-R) (French & Oakes, 2004) to measure social and academic integration. The results of the analyses suggested a statistically significant correlation between being multiracial and social integration, but no significant correlation between being multiracial and academic integration. The relationships remained when the variables were controlled for gender and age. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
