Building a Latina/o Student Transfer Culture: Best Practices and Outcomes in Transfer to Universities
Perez, Patricia A.; Ceja, Miguel
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v9 n1 p6-21 2010
Although most Latina/o transfer students declare intentions to transfer from a community college, few move on to 4-year colleges and universities. The authors provide an overview of the existing information related to transfer objectives and rates. Using the theoretical models of Latina/o critical race theory and validation theory the authors also highlight key practices that promote transfer. Finally, based on previous scholarship the authors outline a Latina/o transfer culture and provide recommendations for future research and policy. (Contains 3 notes.)
