Smedley, Brian D.; And Others
Journal of Higher Education, v64 n4 p434-52 Jul-Aug 1993
A study investigated the relationship of role strains, life events stresses, and minority status (Arfican American, Chicano, Latino, or Pillipino) on the psychological and academic adjustment of 163 minority first-year students at a major university. Results confirmed the hypothesis that minority status confers additional stress and is associated with increased risk of negative outcomes. (MSE)
