Terms 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.
