Abstract:

The issue of undergraduate student retention has been widely studied over the past several decades. Such factors as previous academic preparation, class background, race/ethnicity, gender, financial aid, sense of belonging, social integration and academic integration have been found to impact student departure (Tinto 1975, 1988, and 1993; Pascarella and Terenzini, 1980; Fox, 1986; Pavel and Padilla, 1993; Hurtado and Carter, 1997; Hurtado, 2003; Nora, 1987; Nora, Cabrera, Hadegorn, & Pascarella, 1996; Pascarella & Chapman, 1983). While these studies together provide us with much knowledge of student experiences on college campuses, they do not consider the impact of attending a highly diverse college campus and how attitudes students have toward diversity prior to starting college may impact retention. Using data collected from the Diverse Democracy Project, we examine the retention of Hispanic students in comparison to white students at a Research I, Hispanic Serving Institution. This study is primarily testing pre-college experiences on retention. Using logistic regression, we examine retention into the sophomore (3rd semester) and into the junior (5th semester) year.
