Abstract
This study examined the impact of select institutional characteristics (e.g., attendance intensity, degree of urbanization, institutional size, governance type) on Latino male graduation rates in public, two-year institutions. Data were collected from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and included the 2008 completion rates of degree/certificate-seeking Hispanic male students from 254 public two-year, degree-granting institutions. Findings from this study revealed that select institutional characteristics do in fact result in differential graduation rates for these students. Specifically, findings indicated that Latino males are more likely to achieve at institutions with higher full-time enrollment and at suburban colleges. Implications for practice and further research are extended.
