Blanca E. Rincón (Educational Psychology & Higher Education) published "Does Latinx Representation Matter for Latinx Student Retention in STEM?" in the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education's (AAHE) Journal of Hispanic Higher EducationUsing student-level data, this study explores the relationship between Latinx student representation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and student retention. Results revealed that a  1 percent increase in cohort-level Latinx student representation in STEM subfields is associated with a decrease in student departures from the university, but not STEM. Furthermore, Latinx STEM students may be more responsive to changes in the representation of their cohorts compared with increases in diversity for upper-division undergraduate or graduate students.
