Abstract

This longitudinal study of Latino/a college students considers the influence of Latino/a college student experiences and ethnic identity on holistic development. Findings indicate that although similar characteristics are seen among Latino/a students, the role of recognizing and making meaning of racism is a significant developmental task. This is consistent with other ethnic and racial identity theories, yet this model considers all three dimensions of holistic development: cognitive, identity (intrapersonal), and interpersonal.
