When Nontraditional Is Traditional: A Faculty Dialogue with Graduating Community College Students about Persistence
Clark, Lisa
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v36 n7 p511-519 2012
Nontraditional characteristics of community college students contribute to a sense of belonging and a sense of common struggle, uniting students in their uniqueness to persist. These diverse students, combined with faculty and peer encouragement, provide a learning environment conducive to completion. As community college educators, we have the privilege and responsibility to foster class environments where students may connect and encourage each other in their intersected identities.
