An Ecological Perspective of Latina/o College Student Ethnicity
Geertz Gonzalez, Roger
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v11 n1 p31-44 2017
Although Latinos are the largest minority population in the United States and the largest minority population on American campuses, there is little research concerning Latino college student ethnic identity. This study incorporates an ecological model to examine the levels of influence of different settings and backgrounds of Latino college students. The findings show that Latinos from different countries of origin and within the same countries of origin identify their ethnic identity differently depending on several factors including generation, immigration status, country of origin, language preferences, and discrimination.
