Student Involvement and Institutional Commitment to Diversity as Predictors of Native American Student Learning
Lundberg, Carol A.
Journal of College Student Development, v48 n4 p405-417 Jul-Aug 2007
Using a national sample (n = 643) of Native American students who took the College Student Experiences Questionnaire (CSEQ), the researcher identified how student involvement and institutional commitment to diversity predicted student learning. Native American students reported higher levels of learning when the institution's commitment to diversity was strong and when students were frequently engaged in discussion with others, particularly when that discussion required students to synthesize and integrate information from various sources. Suggestions are made for student affairs efforts to boost institutional emphasis on diversity and to increase frequency of peer discussion. (Contains 2 tables.)
