Storlie, Cassandra A.; Moreno, Luis S.; Portman, Tarrell Awe Agahe
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v36 n1 p64-78 Feb 2014
As Hispanic students continue to be an underrepresented cultural group in higher education, researchers are called to uncover the challenging and complex experience of this diverse group of students. Using the constant comparative method, these researchers conducted a content analysis of the qualitative research on the experiences of Hispanic college students within the "Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences" (1979-2011). Of the 1,060 findings generated, only six qualitative research articles met the inclusion criteria for this content analysis. Eight themes emerged: past barriers, negative college experiences, self-efficacy, positive feelings, succeeding, additional support, cultural awakening, and hope. Discussion of two separate realities for Hispanic college students is included.
