A recent research study conducted by a Clemson University education specialist reported that African American students who were more involved in activities that focused on personal interactions with others developed better socially and personally.

According to Lamont A. Flowers, distinguished professor of educational leadership in Clemson’s Eugene T. Moore school of education and director of the Charles H. Houston center for the study of the black experience in education, the primary goal of the study was to provide a descriptive overview of how black students use their free time on college campuses to give data that could potentially assist student affairs professionals and college administrators in planning programs for students, and making policy decisions related to student development.

The study also noted that black students who were involved in academic experiences in campus attained significantly higher gains in regards to critical thinking, understanding in science and technology and job skills.

The student sample consisted of 5,821 African American students (3,706 freshmen and 2,034 seniors) from 212 postsecondary institutions between 1990 and 2000. Eighteen percent of the sample attended a historically black institution, and 82 percent attended a predominantly white institution.

“The overall results of this study show that African American students tend not to engage in student involvement experiences at high levels on college campuses,” said Flowers.
The study is published in Strengthening the African American Educational Pipeline: Informing Research, Policy, and Practice which is due to be released in February of this year by SUNY Press.
