Conexiones: Latino males’ sense of belonging in historically Black colleges and universities
MetadataShow full item record
This qualitative study examined the perceptions of sense of belonging among ten Latino male students enrolled in two Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in Texas. Through one-on-one interviews, the Latino males revealed relationships with faculty members and an openness to diversity fostered a sense of belonging. However, Greek Letter Organization infrastructure, campus cultural representation, and work responsibilities created obstacles to Latino males’ campus connections. Implications for research and practice are offered.
