"Challenges that confront Black college students today are different from those faced by earlier generations, but today’s students are hardly a monolithic group, the authors conclude. In this book, 14 scholars look at a variety of issues, including the importance of spirituality for Black students, “life or death” college choice dilemmas for Black women, high achievement in spite of adversity, the environment for gay males on campuses and the challenges for Black male students. The book aims to help researchers, faculty, administrators and students understand the college environment and produce better outcomes." (Diverse: Issues in Higher Education)
"Writings on the black collegiate experience at both predominatly white and historically black institutions; topics include parental influence and institutional support." (The Chronicle of HIgher Education)
“It appears that we know more than ever about Black students and their needs with regards to academic and social support. However, we continue to be plagued with issues of retention and dropout of minority students, especially our Black students. The issues look the same as they did years ago when campuses begin to seriously consider integration. Yet, the students are not the same, and they come to campus with a multitude of needs that are similar to our past students, but also vastly different. The editors of this book educate the reader to the diversity of how unique our Black students are across various types of institutions. Practitioners in higher education, student affairs, and undergraduate studies should find the chapters relevant to understanding today’s Black college student." (Lemuel W. Watson)
