A Focus on American Indian College Persistence.
Benjamin, Don-Paul; And Others
Journal of American Indian Education, v32 n2 p24-40 Jan 1993
Among 166 American Indian first-year college students studied for 6 years, only 16% graduated during the period. Typical college entrance criteria did not necessarily predict persistence. Interviews with 11 Navajo students examined going-home behavior, early educational intentions, and acculturation, and suggested culturally distinct characteristics of persisters. Contains 47 references. (SV)
