Factors Correlated with the Interactional Diversity of Community College Students
Jones, Willis A.
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v9 n1 p81-94 Mar 2016
This study used data from the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) to examine how student background characteristics, student engagement, and institutional characteristics correlate with the frequency of interactional diversity among community college students. Given the current lack of research on interactional diversity among community college students, the findings of this study offer the higher education community much needed evidence that can help practitioners better understand the conditions which foster and limit interactional diversity at 2-year institutions.
