"¿Pertenezco a Esta Universidad?" The Mediating Role of Belonging for Collective Self-Esteem and Mattering for Latin@ Undergraduates
Dueñas, Mary; Gloria, Alberta M.
Journal of College Student Development, v58 n6 p891-906 Sep 2017
We examined differences in and relationship of psychological (collective self-esteem), social (cohesion and university belonging), and cultural (cultural congruity) dimensions of university mattering for 141 Latin@ undergraduates. Collectively the dimensions accounted for 50% of the variance, with the psychological dimension having the largest prediction of mattering, followed by the social dimension. Belonging mediated the relationships of cohesion and congruity with mattering, respectively, and college generation moderated the relationship of cohesion and mattering. College generation also moderated the relationship of cohesion and belonging, evidencing a moderated mediation.
