Bers, Trudy H.; Smith, Kerry E.
Research in Higher Education, v32 n5 p539-56 Oct 1991
A study examined the extent to which social and academic integration and student educational objectives were predictive of persistence for 1,142 community college students. Student educational objectives discriminated most powerfully between persisters and nonpersisters. Academic and social integration and employment status were also significant factors. Implications are discussed. (Author/MSE)
