Human Kaleidoscopes: Cultivating Success in Non-Traditional Students

"Non-traditional students are a growing population in higher education, yet our understandings of the unique factors that predict their success have not increased. This narrative inquiry examines the lived experiences of high school dropouts entering the college arena as non-traditional students, attempting to improve their personal and academic lifestyles by acquiring a General Education Diploma (GED) in addition to obtaining an associate’s degree from a for-profit postsecondary educational institution. The purpose of this study is to better understand the lives andcircumstances of students, leading up to their dropping out of high school."

Dr. Carolyn Coles Benton was formerly a hospital administrator at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York. As a result of her previous experience in health care, she was able to identify the common disparities within health care and education closely associated working with underserved populations. She is currently working in postsecondary urban education, advising nontraditional students, and creating models for success among adult learners where cultural change and academic transformations are evolving.
