While many universities have taken the initiative to diversify campus
enrollment, some still contend issues of maintaining the population.
This is especially true for predominantly white institutions,
where severe underrepresentation of Black students is
common. Such institutions require access to psychological and
socio-cultural dimensions to address low retention rates of Black
students. This research analyzes the phenomena of alienation
affiliated with Black students described at a predominantly white,
elitist post-secondary institution. Through a series of interviews
and review of existing data, this study aims to assess the psychological
nature of alienation and academic satisfaction among
Black students at post-secondary institutions.
