Abstract of Dissertation
Increasing Strategies and Programs for the Retention and Graduation of Black Undergraduate Students at the University of Central Florida
This study aims to expand the knowledge and understanding of retention and persistence opportunities for Black students at the University of Central Florida. Qualitative research and data were collected and analyzed on six minority students at UCF. The study discovered academic, social, and cultural factors that affect Black undergraduate students' retention, persistence, and graduation at the University of Central Florida.
Analysis of the data revealed the need for minority students to access academic strategies and participate in intervention programs that aid Black students in succeeding and graduating from UCF. While recruitment is an essential factor with minorities attending higher educational institutions- ensuring academic strategies and interventions are equally important in the success and graduation of minority students at UCF and American higher educational institutions.
