Jun, Alexander; Tierney, William G.
Metropolitan Universities: An International Forum, v9 n4 p49-60 Spr 1999
Changes in higher-education policy make it harder for underrepresented minorities in urban environments to gain access to or succeed in higher education. A framework is offered for effective college preparation programs to address the unique needs of low-income, urban minority youth. The framework focuses on development of both academic and cultural capital and family involvement in this population. (Author/MSE)
