Using heuristic and qualitative methodology, this thesis investigates whether or not the mental health and academic performance of African Americans students are affected when they attend predominantly White institutions of higher learning. There has been much research done on many correlating subjects such as the effects of diversity on campuses, the effects of being a minority on a college campus, minority students’ access to higher education, the role historically Black college and universities have played in providing African American students with access to higher education, the struggles African American students face on various campuses, and how the history of the United States plays a role in the education system today.
This study suggests ways college and universities can assist their students by taking a critical look at their student populations to examine over- and underrepresentation of different races and training their clinicians in counseling students of diverse backgrounds.
