The role of social network locations in the college access mentoring of urban youth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study uses social network analysis to describe the social network of college mentors in a college access program. Urban students in the program are paired with college mentors-students, professors, and other institutional agents-to help improve their college going process. The study analyzes the social networks within which the mentors are embedded, and highlights how different mentors have varying levels of social capital.
