William Hosea welcomes guest Richard Coleman, director of the Center for Career and Employer Relations at Vincennes University.
From the pages of Diverse Issues in Higher Education we read that, “There is significant emphasis placed on the retention and success rate in community colleges among African-American and Hispanic males. Many are experiencing great problems in our society and within the social structure.”
Many African-American and Hispanic males experience academic distress in colleges and have frequently been described in research studies as: (a) being from a low social academic background; (b) being a minimal academic achiever; and (c) possessing a general low self-concept.
Major research efforts have identified a number of factors that tend to impact minority males’ decision to drop or even stop-out of colleges. To explore this further, we have invited Richard Coleman, director of the Center for Career and Employer Relations at Vincennes University, to join us to discuss his pending doctoral research into these alarming patterns titled : Resilience in African American Male College Students.
Headline news and local calendar events of interest to the African-American community.
