Minority and Nonminority Adjustment to College: Differences or Similarities?
Eimers, Mardy T.; Pike, Gary R.
Research in Higher Education, v38 n1 p77-97 Feb 1997
A survey of 799 freshmen at a residential, public research university found perceived school quality had a significant effect on intent to persist for minorities but not for non-minorities, and academic achievement had a significant effect for non-minorities but not for minorities. However, similarities between the groups were more common than differences. Perceived racial discrimination exerted equivalent effects on both. (Author/MSE)
