A Delineation of Asian American and Latino/a Students' Experiences with Faculty at a Historically Black College and University
Palmer, Robert T.; Maramba, Dina C.
Journal of College Student Development, v56 n2 p111-126 Mar 2015
Research has shown that the enrollment of Asian American and Latino/a students are increasing at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Nevertheless, research on how these students experience the institutional climate of HBCUs is nonexistent. Hence, this study sought to explore the college choice process and perceptions of campus climate for Asian American and Latino/a students at HBCUs. One of the salient themes that emerged from this study was the participants' perception of faculty as supportive and exhibiting care for their well-being. Despite this, there was a concern among some participants that faculty lacked knowledge about non-Black students and were culturally exclusive in their teaching. This article discusses those experiences and concludes by providing implications for future research and institutional practice.
