Nora, Amaury; And Others
Research in Higher Education, v37 n4 p427-51 Aug 1996
A study of college student persistence decisions found college experiences, academic achievement, and environmental pull factors contributed most to persistence decisions, with differential effects for gender and ethnic groups. No precollege factors were significant. For minorities the strongest factors in dropping out were family responsibilities and off-campus work. Faculty mentoring outside class had a significant positive effect on women. (Author/MSE)
