Abstract

Seeking to replicate the results of Harper et al.'s (2004), this article examined gender differences in student engagement among Black students at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). While this study yielded some findings that were similar to Harper et al.'s study, the majority of findings were inconsistent with Harper et al.'s study. This article discusses findings that may account for these differences and concludes with implications for institutional practice and future research.
