Lopez, Edward M.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v17 n4 p499-508 Nov 1995
A survey of 100 Mexican American undergraduate students assessed their perceptions of five challenges (and associated resources) to completing college: financial problems, domestic responsibilities, academic discouragement, and racial and gender discrimination. There were no differences between upper- and lower-division students. Males were more likely than females to report academic discouragement and racial discrimination. (Author/SV)
