dc.description.abstractAccording to previous research there are important differences in the college experience of ethnic minority students in comparison to the college experience of majority students. These differences include lower retention rates, lower feelings of engagement, and lower academic performance. The current study will focus on assessing an intervention in order to positively alter the attitudes of both minority and majority students. We hypothesize this will reduce the differences between their college experiences. Four senior psychology students have implemented a mentoring program in which students in a lower level course are given brief social-psychological interventions and mentored in small groups once a week for six weeks. The four senior psychology students are also acting as the learning assistant’s in the course. We expect to see an increase in the academic performance of minority students, an increase in their feelings of engagement, and an increase in their positive reports of college experience.
