The article presents a study that explores the socialization factors that affect the academic persistence of students of color in graduate campus-based, advanced-degree programs in the U.S. The data gathered in the study were coded and then analyzed through an iterative process that included participants reading drafts to provide clarity on interpretations of the interviewers. In addition, the findings supported the theoretical framework suggesting that a sense of belonging is important in academic persistence.
