The Role of Social Network Locations in the College Access Mentoring of Urban Youth
Ahn, June
Education and Urban Society, v42 n7 p839-859 Nov 2010
This study uses social network analysis to describe the social network of college mentors in a college access program. Urban students in the program are paired with college mentors-students, professors, and other institutional agents-to help improve their college going process. The study analyzes the social networks within which the mentors are embedded, and highlights how different mentors have varying levels of social capital. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
