Predicting Latino Community College Student Success: A Conceptual Model For First-Year Retention, 2019 Seton Hall University
Predicting Latino Community College Student Success: A Conceptual Model For First-Year Retention, Helen Castellanos Brewer
Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)
Students decide to remain enrolled in community college more so during their first-year of matriculation, than at any other point in their education.

While Latino college students enroll in two-year colleges more than any other racial/ethnic group, there is limited research available that comprehensively studies the experience of Latino community college students.
This study’s purpose was to contribute to existing literature on first-year retention of Latino college students by researching the relationship between ...

Dance/Movement Therapy As A Tool To Address Racism And Injustice In Service Learning, 2019 Lesley University
Dance/Movement Therapy As A Tool To Address Racism And Injustice In Service Learning, Melody Gamba
