Native American College Student Persistence
Mosholder, Richard; Goslin, Christopher
Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, v15 n3 p305-327 Nov 2013
Native American students are the most likely racial/ethnic group tracked in post-secondary American education to be affected by poverty and limited access to educational opportunities. In addition, they are the most likely to be required to take remedial course work and are the least likely to graduate from college. A review of the literature was undertaken to analyze the research and opinions directed toward improving Native American student persistence and academic success at the post-secondary level. Five factors emerged during this review that support Native American student post-secondary persistence. These are skill development, family and peer support, appropriate role-models, awareness and use of financial aid, and a culturally sensitive school environment.
