Building Momentum in Student Engagement: Alternative Breaks and Students' Social Justice and Diversity Orientation
Niehaus, Elizabeth
Journal of College Student Development, v58 n1 p53-70 Jan 2017
Drawing from the theory of academic momentum, the purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between what happens before, during, and after an alternative break (AB) experience and students' reported gains in diversity and social justice orientations 1 year after their AB. Findings point to the importance of considering how these types of programs are structured and implemented, not just whether or not students participate, and of encouraging continued engagement after an AB experience.
