Hispanic American community college students--New Jersey
Community College Leadership | Higher Education
The purpose of this multicase study was to investigate and understand how institutional agents foster a culturally engaging campus environment to facilitate completion for Latinx students at federally designated Hispanic-serving community colleges in New Jersey. This multicase study focused on institutional agents at two New Jersey community colleges with high completion rates for Latinx students. Through interviews, observations, and analysis of institutional documents, data on institutional capacity, intentionality, and clarity of purpose were collected to identify patterns among the cases. There were six participants interviewed in this study and the research questions were used to guide the study in exploring cultural relevance, cultural responsiveness, and Latinx completion through the perspective of the institutional agents at each New Jersey Hispanic-serving community college.
