Document Number: 8478Terms of Engagement: Men of Color Discuss Their Experiences in Community College - Over the course of the 2007-08 academic year, a research team led by MDRC conducted qualitative interviews and focus groups with 87 African-American, Hispanic and Native American male students who were enrolled in developmental math classes at four Achieving the Dream colleges in the southeastern and southwestern United States. The students' responses illustrate how their life experiences have shaped their identities, behaviors and choices as individuals and as college students. They offer insights into promising recommendations for programs and policies. (Alissa Gardenhire-Crooks, Herbert Collado, Kasey Martin and Alma Castro, MDRC, March 2010)...
