Abstract:

While the number of Latina/o students enrolling in college continues to rise, their 6-year graduation rate continues to lag behind white peers. Recent studies indicate only 51% of Latina/o students who begin college complete a degree compared to 59% for white students. What effect could participation in media production have on the retention and graduation of Latina/o students at predominantly white institutions? Can participation in media production increase success, satisfaction, and the mental health of Latina/o students in higher education? This paper uses the case of a student-produced, Spanish-language radio program to theorize and draw preliminary conclusions about Latino student outcomes in higher education, with a focus on success, satisfaction, and mental health. The paper draws on higher education theory to construct hypotheses about the broader possibility of using media production as a mechanism for increasing Latina/o student resilience.
