University of Minnesota: Center for Research on Developmental Education and Urban Literacy
Minnesota has long prided itself on providing ample higher education
opportunities for its citizens. However, there is a well-documented and
growing disparity in Minnesota and nationally between various racial
and economic groups’ participation in college and technical college
(McGee 1996, 1997; Almonor & Shulman August 1997; Mortenson,
October 1997; Ghere, Moore & Schelske 1999). This study’s charge
was to determine if participation in higher education at the University
of Minnesota–Twin Cities, of African American men, age 18 to 30,
from Hennepin County (henceforth HCAAM) mirrors, improves
upon, or is behind state and national conditions.
