The goal of this study was to investigate if there is a correlation between minority students retention and encountering, whether through teaching a course or having an advisor, minority faculty. Moreover, the study investigated how the minority students felt on a predominantly white campus. The subjects included were freshmen, sophomore, junior, and senior students who resided on-campus at Rowan University. The students data and information will be collected via an online survey. The findings of the data will consider the attitudes of minority students and if they feel that their experience would be different if they had more minority faculty who were their academic advisors, instructors, or even within their college’s program.
