Nontraditional Black Male Undergraduates: A Call to Action

Nontraditional Black Male Undergraduates: A Call to Action Institutions of higher education have witnessed an influx of nontraditional Black college students generally, and males specifically. However, there is limited research that investigates the academic and social experiences of nontraditional Black males. As universities seek to improve the academic retention and graduation rates of Black males, nontraditional Black male undergraduates must be included in the discussion. This article provides a call to action for researchers and practitioners not only to begin researching nontraditional aged Black male collegians but also to focus on those men who are academically successful to inform the academic and social supports on college campuses implemented for nontraditional Black men. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Adult Learning SAGE

Abstract

Institutions of higher education have witnessed an influx of nontraditional Black college students generally, and males specifically. However, there is limited research that investigates the academic and social experiences of nontraditional Black males. As universities seek to improve the academic retention and graduation rates of Black males, nontraditional Black male undergraduates must be included in the discussion. This article provides a call to action for researchers and practitioners not only to begin researching nontraditional aged Black male collegians but also to focus on those men who are academically successful to inform the academic and social supports on college campuses implemented for nontraditional Black men.
