Racially Minoritized Students at U.S. Four-Year Institutions
Stewart, Dafina-Lazarus
Journal of Negro Education, v82 n2 p184-197 Spr 2013
Racially minoritized students attending U.S. colleges and universities are often compared to their White peers in research studies, generally emphasizing their cultural deficits, masking minority group achievement, and homogenizing within group variations. This article reports data for racially minoritized students who participated in the national 2000 College Senior Survey administered by the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) housed at Higher Education Research Institute. Using descriptive data and chi-square tests, the findings draw a picture of these students that does not presume homogenous characteristics or experiences and challenges some previously established beliefs about this population. Implications for research and practice are provided. (Contains 2 tables.)
