This monograph explores best practices for access and retention in higher education in programs that support the most diverse and nontraditional students on their campuses. It focuses on research, theory, and assessment in a variety of national programs. Its 14 chapters provide historic information about successful initiatives, multicultural and international strategies, and student background factors that influence retention and success. This monograph specifically addresses retention perspectives of students who are first-generation, immigrant or refugees who are nonnative speakers of English, students with disabilities, or students from a low-socioeconomic background. The following are appended: (1) Bibliography of Resources for Multicultural Higher Education; (2) Publication Announcements; and (3) Call for Submissions.
