Supporting Working-Class Students in Higher Education
Soria, Krista; Bultmann, Mark
NACADA Journal, v34 n2 p51-62 2014
Utilizing data from the multi-institutional "Student Experience in the Research University" survey, we examined self-identified working-class students' experiences in higher education. The results suggest that working-class students experience a lower sense of belonging, perceive a less welcoming campus climate, and pursue fewer social engagements than their peers who self-identify as middle/upper-class. Specific suggestions direct academic advisors to promote working-class students' success.
