Young adult Catholics : religion in the culture of choice by Dean R Hoge( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leaders of the American Catholic community want to and need to reach out to young adults. But effective ministry to young adults depends on an understanding of the attitudes and the needs of the current generation of Catholics in their 20s and 30s. This is why Dean Hoge, William Dinges, Mary Johnson, and Juan Gonzales began their study of young adult Catholics. How do they actually live their Catholicism? Are they alienated from the Church? Are they cynical about the Church's moral teachings? Do they take the pope's statements seriously? Do they attend Mass? Have significant numbers left for other Churches? Do they want Catholic education for their children?" "Seeking answers to these and other questions, the authors conducted a national survey in 1997, supplemented by a telephone survey and then by personal interviews with over 800 men and women across the country. The interviews put a human face on the information provided, and they form a compelling part of this timely narrative. Of special interest is the focus on Latino Catholics. The authors underscore observations that include the strength and tenacity of Catholic identity in spite of many challenges, the high level of personal decision making among those interviewed and surveyed, and the readiness of young Catholics for institutional reforms."--[Book jacket

Latino persistence in higher education : a 1994 survey of University of California and California State University Chicano/Latino students by Robert P Haro( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study sought to identify and analyze critical factors in a Hispanic student's decision to persist or drop out at California state four-year institutions. In-depth telephone interviews with 151 Hispanic American students at five University of California campuses and seven California State University campuses were conducted. The interviews focused on the role of the Latino family, influence of peers, mentors, gender, finances, retention programs at target institutions, and campus climate. Findings included the following: (1) most of the students were from families with four or more children; (2) most indicated receiving strong encouragement and support in their academic endeavors from their parents; (3) eight of ten held jobs while attending college; (4) 75 percent of students worked off-campus; (5) 83 percent enrolled as full-time students; (6) the majority of students were living at or below the poverty level and depended on family for financial support; (7) the largest number attended California State University campuses, allowing many of them to live at home; (8) almost 60 percent of students felt the lack of financial aid was the most serious obstacle to the achievement of their educational goals; and (9) 77 percent felt welcomed on campus and felt no alienation. The most comprehensive retention programs were at the University of California, especially the Berkeley campus. (Contains 80 references.) (JB)
