Journal of Latinos and Education, v9 n3 p172-188 2010
This study was conducted with 11 Latina/o college students in order to provide insight into how these students develop a sense of resilience. Five factors from J. H. McMillan and D. F. Reed's (1994) concept of resiliency appeared to play an important role in these students' high academic achievement: high educational goals, support and encouragement from parents, intrinsic motivation, internal locus of control, and high self-efficacy. Recommendations for future research are offered, and implications for practice are presented.
