Description

African Americans graduate from Minnesota Colleges significantly less than other Minnesotans. Minnesota State University Mankato graduates significantly fewer African Americans than are admitted. Why? What barriers do African American students on Minnesota campuses experience? What support systems are in place and what do they aim to do. This study will look specifically at the problems African American students experience on this state’s college campuses, largely white, and see what factors are involved with trying to support these students to ensure their success.
