The Role of Collectivism among Latino American College Students
Arevalo, Irving; So, Dominicus; McNaughton-Cassill, Mary
Journal of Latinos and Education, v15 n1 p3-11 2016
In an attempt to explain the lower Latino college graduation rate, the current study focuses on collectivism in kin and nonkin helping situations. The sample comprised 60 students at a 4-year college in the southwestern United States. Results revealed significance between ethnicity and nonkin collectivism: Latino American college students were significantly more collectivistic toward nonkin groups compared to their non-Latino American counterparts. The use of various support systems may shed some light on the necessary remedy for Latinos' lower college graduation rate. Implications are discussed for cultural sensitivity training and program development to foster the experience and success of Latino American college students.
