Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v4 n11 p9-12 Nov 2007
This paper provides several suggestions Hispanic student recruitment and retention in MIS or other business curricula. Cultural considerations like allocentrism and familialism are discussed along with the situation at K-State. It is believed that the recruitment and retention of Hispanic students can be influenced positively by considering cultural issues. Development of a more diverse student population and leveraging latent capability in the local population of new Kansans potentially will strengthen the local economy and help pave the way for a better future in the Midwest.
