Ascending toward New Heights: Building Navigational Capital for Latinx Community College Students
Doran, Erin; Hengesteg, Paul
Journal of The First-Year Experience & Students in Transition, v32 n1 p29-41 Mar 2020
The Ascender program was created in 2012 by Catch the Next Inc., to address the challenges of increasing community college retention and transfer rates, especially among Latinx students in developmental education. This study looks at the experiences of participants in this program and how it provided validating experiences and fostered their navigational capital on campus and through the transfer process. Results show that a rich first-year experience and additional engagement with the Ascender program helps students learn how to better navigate the complex systems of financial aid and transfer processes while also building their confidence as successful college students.
