Abstract
The purpose of this study was to better understand factors that facilitate help-seeking among Southeast Asian men attending community colleges. Using data from the Community College Survey of Men (CCSM), the sample was delimited to men who identified as Southeast Asian (n = 140). Backwards multiple linear regression analysis was used to determine the effect of the control (background/defining) and predictor (noncognitive) variables on help-seeking. Degree utility, intrinsic interest, and self-efficacy were significant predictors of help-seeking. Given the importance of degree utility, intrinsic interest, and self-efficacy on help-seeking for Southeast Asian men, we conclude this study by offering recommendations for creating conditions that foster these factors.
