Hu, Shouping; Kuh, George D.
Research in Higher Education, v43 n5 p555-75 Oct 2002
Analyzed self-reported experiences of undergraduates to identify characteristics associated with student engagement. Parental education and student academic preparation were positively associated with higher levels of engagement. Whites were generally less engaged, and men were more likely to be disengaged or highly engaged. Students at public and research universities were less engaged, and student perceptions affected engagement in complicated ways. (EV)
