Impact of the Environment: How Does Attending a Hispanic-Serving Institution Influence the Engagement of Baccalaureate-Seeking Latina/o Students?
Fosnacht, Kevin; Nailos, Jennifer N.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v15 n3 p187-204 Jul 2016
Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) enroll the majority of Latina/o students in higher education; however, it is unclear how HSIs influence Latina/os' postsecondary experiences. In this study, we examined how the Latina/o student experience differed between students who did and did not attend 4-year HSIs. The results suggest that HSIs generally have positive, but modest, effects on Latina/o's student engagement and self-perceived gains. The differences were more pronounced for first-year students than seniors.
