Abstract

In this book, Blanca Campa, a professor of educational psychology at El Paso Community College (EPCC), gives readers a window into the experiences and perspectives of a small group of faculty and students at EPCC, an urban, multicampus system located on the Texas–Mexico border. Given that the majority of Latinx students enter postsecondary education in community colleges and nearly half of all Hispanic-serving institutions are 2-year institutions, there is a critical need for research on these students. The Mexican American Community College Experience draws on research literature from across disciplines and qualitative data Campa collected over the course of several years on the campus.
