Mentoring: Implications for African American College Students (Report) The Western Journal of Black Studies read online review & book description:

The importance of a college degree in the United States is becoming increasingly apparent. There is an emerging difference in the overall earning potential of those with high school diplomas and those with bachelor's degrees (Mortenson, 2005; Perna, 2003). Despite the importance of higher education being present in the minds of many Americans, poor retention and graduation rates for African American students, particularly males, persist in universities. The nationwide average for African American college graduates in 2000 was 37 percent, compared to 59 percent for White students (Cross & Slater, 2001). According to Cross and Slater (2001) the decrease in the number of African American male university graduates in the past 10 years holds negative implications not only for the African American community and American society as a whole, but it also reflects negatively on universities who want to increase diversity and retention rates.
