Toward an Intercultural Perspective of Racial and Ethnic Minority College Student Persistence
Museus, Samuel D.; Quaye, Stephen John
Review of Higher Education, v33 n1 p67-94 Fall 2009
Six of every 10 Black and Latina/o undergraduates who begin higher education at a four-year institution will fail to earn a bachelor's degree within six years. These low rates of attainment are accompanied by negative consequences for individual students and the larger society. Consequently, scholars have advocated for the importance of considering new perspectives of minority college student persistence in higher education research. This study is aimed at generating a new intercultural framework for understanding racial/ethnic minority student persistence processes using existing literature and the voices of students of color. Implications for future research and practice are discussed. (Contains 1 footnote.)
