Zerquera, Desiree D.; Gross, Jacob P. K.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v16 n3 p209-231 Jul 2017
This article examined the effect of elements within Latina/o students' institutional context on Latina/o student success outcomes. Findings highlight the significant role institutional contexts play in Latina/o success. Specifically, it was found that student success was lower for students enrolled at regional campuses and campuses that serve high proportions of students of color and higher for students at campuses with higher proportion of faculty of color. Implications for policy and practice are discussed.
