Turning Graduate School Aspirations into Enrollment: How Student Affairs Professionals Can Help African American Students
The purpose of this qualitative study was to highlight the relationship between student affairs professionals and African American students who are considering pursuing doctoral degree programs. The data were interpreted through Sanfordâ€™s (1966) conceptualization of challenge and support. Findings reveal that African American students form meaningful relationships with student affairs professionals that both challenge and support their pursuit of the doctorate. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
