Abstract (Summary)

This study examined the relationship between the academic satisfaction and social satisfaction among African American male students attending a community college in the state of Mississippi and their willingness to enroll if they had it to do over again. This study utilized a quantitative, Spearman correlation research design using existing data. The community college studied annually administers the Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI), a product of Noel-Levitz, and provided the responses to the researcher. There were 405 students who participated in the survey for the year studied. Out of 405 students, 34 students identified as African American and male. The survey included 113 questions; there were 15 academic and 13 social satisfaction questions utilized for this study. Answers were given based on a 7-point Likert scale.

Results from this study showed a significant relationship between academic satisfaction and social satisfaction as a predictor to African American males enrolling at this particular institution if they had it to do over again. This study enhances the ability for institutional administrators at this community college as well as other institutions of higher learning to make the best possible decision when implementing policies and procedures, based on the current enrolled student population.
