Research in Higher Education, v39 n2 p103-19 Apr 1998
A study used theory elaboration to help revise Tinto's interactionalist theory of individual student departure from college to include the effects of organizational attributes on student withdrawal. Results provide strong support for including concepts from organizational theory and suggest future research should use theory elaboration to look for other potential sources of social integration.
