Abstract

"Since the founding of Harvard University in 1636, institutions of higher education have been concerned with students leaving college prior to completing degree requirements" (Jackson, 1992, p.14). The complex ways in which people learn and ultimately persist while attending institutions of higher education is not easily understood or formulated. As research indicates, minority students on predominantly white institutions have particular needs which must be met in order to enhance their achievement and persistence on college campuses (Allen, 1992). Many minority students encounter a variety of problems while enrolled at predominantly white institutions; therefore, there is a need for fresh, innovative, and genuine approaches to enhancing minority students' matriculation rate (Burrell & Trobmley, 1983).
