Hip-Hop Is the Healer: Sense of Belonging and Diversity among Hip-Hop Collegians
Sulé, V. Thandi
Journal of College Student Development, v57 n2 p181-196 Mar 2016
Sense of belonging is recognized as a factor contributing to persistence to graduation. Furthermore, interactional diversity is associated with learning and civic outcomes--touted higher education goals. Hip-hop culture, one of the most influential cultural creations of the mid-20th century, has succeeded in attracting devotees from diverse backgrounds. However, very little higher education research exists on the role of hip-hop culture in higher education institutions. As colleges seek ways to promote diversity and respond to diverse student experiences, members of hip-hop enclaves may provide insight into how to facilitate sense of belonging and interactional diversity.
