Student Involvement & Academic Outcomes

Implications for Diverse College Student Populations


Donald Jr. Mitchell, Krista M. Soria, Elizabeth A. Daniele and John A. Gipson

Student Involvement and Academic Outcomes links student involvement to tangible academic outcomes (i.e., GPAs, retention rates, graduation rates). This is particularly important for diverse student populations (e.g., underrepresented minority, first-generation college, and low-income students) who now make up a significant portion (and will soon become the majority) of U.S. college students. The text is a valuable tool for higher education administrators, faculty, staff, graduate students, parents, students, and scholars alike. In addition, the volume is ideal for master’s and doctoral programs in higher education and student affairs-related fields and for courses that examine issues/experiences associated with diverse U.S. college students, student affairs intervention strategies, racial and ethnic diversity in higher education, and critical/contemporary issues in higher education.

Advance praise for Student Involvement & Academic Outcomes


“This book is an important contribution to the literature on student engagement and outcomes. Student participant responses in my research indicated that men and women of color, felt apart from the student life into which they were being socialized—at best, they felt as though they were guests in someone else’s house. The editors and authors of Student Involvement & Academic Outcomes: Implications for Diverse College Student Populations provide much-needed insights from multiple perspectives to further the reader’s understanding of this phenomenon and to promote actions to address it.”

Caroline Sotello Viernes Turner, Professor, California State University, Sacramento and Past President, Association for the Study of Higher Education
