Hispanic Minority College Students at Selective Colleges: What Matters with Degree Completion?
Wagner, Jennie M.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v14 n4 p303-326 Oct 2015
Hispanic college enrollment in 2011 surpassed all other minority groups. However, Hispanic graduation rates continue to lag. This study examines background, academic integration, social integration, perception of prejudice and discrimination factors, and social capital factors, and how these affect Hispanic undergraduate 6-year completion rates at selective colleges. The results demonstrate that social capital during the high school senior year and attending a private or liberal arts college positively affect Hispanic students' graduation rates.
