Cultural Diversity & Ethnic Minority Psychology, v7 n1 p88-102 Feb 2001
The decisions of 83 American Indian undergraduates to drop out of school were investigated based on the influence of their self-beliefs, social support, and comfort. Although all three accounted for academic nonpersistence decisions, social support was the strongest predictor. Discusses implications for increasing academic persistence of students, such as fostering mentoring relationships and providing interventions to increase social support. (Author/JDM)
