Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v12 n4 p356-368 Oct 2013
Minority retention models have identified student needs that may or may not be addressed by institutional first-year experience (FYE) programming at Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs). Qualitatively, this study examined Hispanic and Black first-year experiences in an HSI context. Identified themes included sense of belonging, career and major selection, and being held accountable for what they do not know.
