Conexiones: Latino Males' Sense of Belonging in Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Allen, Taryn Ozuna; Stone, Ashley N.; Palmer, Robert T.; Maramba, Dina C.; Dinh, Trang; Sáenz, Victor B.
Texas Education Review, v7 n1 p6-20 2018
This qualitative study examined the perceptions of sense of belonging among ten Latino male students enrolled in two Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in Texas. Through one-on-one interviews, the Latino males revealed relationships with faculty members and an openness to diversity fostered a sense of belonging. However, Greek Letter Organization infrastructure, campus cultural representation, and work responsibilities created obstacles to Latino males' campus connections. Implications for research and practice are offered.
