Identifying the Different Behaviors and Needs of Immigrant and Language Minority Students at Public Four Year Higher Education Institutions
Murphy, Kevin B.
Metropolitan Universities, v18 n1 p70-86 2007
This paper uses data from the 2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS:2000) and the 1996 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:96/01) to examine some behaviors and outcomes for immigrants and/or students who spoke a primary language other than English as children as compared to those of other citizens and English only speakers. We pay special attention to differences in these populations at public four-year institutions in large cities versus those in other locales.
