Racial Differences in the Effects of Campus Racial Climate on Degree Completion: A Structural Equation Model
Museus, Samuel D.; Nichols, Andrew H.; Lambert, Amber D.
Review of Higher Education, v32 n1 p107-134 Fall 2008
Racial minority student persistence is of paramount importance to higher education policymakers and practitioners. This study was aimed at understanding racial differences in the direct and indirect effects of campus racial climate on degree completion using structural equation modeling techniques and a nationally representative sample. The findings of this analysis highlight the importance of examining conditional effects and indicate that students from disparate racial backgrounds may experience and react to their campus racial climates in different ways. Implications for research and practice are discussed. (Contains 5 figures and 6 tables.)
