An Inspiration for African Americans Seeking Higher Education in USA

There is proof that black Americans can get an academic degree even in white-dominated universities


Leesburg, Virginia. – WEBWIRE

There is a significant gap in the number of African American high school graduates who enroll in largely white-dominated colleges and in the number of graduates.

There is a significant gap in the number of African American high school graduates who enroll in largely white-dominated colleges and in the number of graduates. The Retention of First Year Black Male Students at Predominately White Private and Public Universities and Colleges, a dissertation research by Dr. Sandy Woodrow Yancy Sr., provides solution to this retention problem.
 
The subjects of this research are six black male college students who successfully made it through their first year in college. Dr. Yancy’s research obtained eleven prevailing factors (precollegiate and collegiate) that influenced the retention of the students. These factors involve not only the determination of the students but also the support of their family, religion and spirituality, and their on-campus interactions.
 
The experiences of the students provide valuable input not only to other black American high school students who want to enroll in predominately white universities but also to counselors, faculty, and college administrators.
