Delineating the ways that targeted support programs facilitate minority students’ access to social networks and development of social capital in collegeEnrollment Management Journal (2010)
Despite efforts to increase success rates among racial/ethnic minority college student populations, these groups continue to suffer from noticeable disparities in degree attainment. This qualitative examination of targeted support programs is designed to develop a better understanding of the role of such programs in facilitating success among college students of color at three campuses with high and equitable retention and graduation rates among underrepresented racial/ethnic minority college students. Findings illustrate how targeted support programs help those students access social networks and develop social capital by creating a web of early, continuous, and integrated connections with other undergraduates of color.
