Graff, Cristina Santamaria; McCain, Terrence; Gomez-Vilchis, Veronica
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v12 n4 p334-344 Oct 2013
Many Latina students overcome multiple obstacles to earn university degrees. Five married Latina women with children and seasonal farmworker backgrounds are the focus of this study which is analyzed through resiliency theory to understand factors contributing to their academic resilience. Variables connected to academic success are explored and include supportive familial networks, self-efficacy, and participants' desires to instill the value of education in their children. Implications for future research and practice are discussed.
