Future research on Hispanic students: What have we yet to learn? and What new and diverse perspectives are needed to examine Latino success in higher education?
MetadataShow full item record
The paper expands a recent review by Nora and Crisp (2009) by offering a line of investigation that identifies research most needed to advance our understanding of how Hispanic students experience college, with a focus toward identifying factors that support student success. First, the authors highlight several specific methodological, conceptual, and theoretical issues limiting the existing knowledge base on Hispanic students. Within the identification of those issues, the authors call for new perspectives that they hope researchers will consider in studying the success of Hispanic college students. Then, they discuss what they believe to be areas of research that deserve the immediate attention of higher education scholars, incorporating recommendations from scholars engaged in work on Hispanic student success.
