Brotherhood and College Latinos: A Phenomenological Study
Estrada, Fernando; Mejia, Araceli; Hufana, Alyssa Mae
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v16 n4 p314-337 Oct 2017
An understudied topic is the social experiences of college Latinos. In this study, six men shared their experience of brotherhood or "hermandad". Individual interviews yielded qualitative data that were subjected to inductive coding resulting in seven descriptive themes conveying the essence of brotherhood. The findings and implications are discussed in light of extant literature. Study limitations precede discussion on future scholarship that is focused on the postsecondary success of a highly underrepresented student population.
