Abstract

Under-represented students continue to struggle with a myriad of social and educational inequities in their pursuit of higher education. Their under-representation in colleges and universities has been influenced not by a lack of academic ability (Gonzalez, Stone, & Jovel, 2003), but by rising costs of college, increased standards in admissions criteria, and inadequate secondary education preparation (Auerbach, 2004; Valenzuela, 1999).
