Capitalizing on Interpersonal Thriving: Exploring the Community Cultural Wealth in Latino Undergraduate Men's Peer Networks
Few studies examine factors that contribute to Latino undergraduate men's successful transition during college. Using data from The National Study on Latino Male Achievement in Higher Education, this study integrated two asset-based theories—Schreiner's (2010) thriving quotient and Yosso's (2005) community cultural wealth framework—to understand how participants experienced interpersonal thriving. Latino undergraduate men shared how they used different forms of capital to cope with microaggressions that diminished their social connectedness. Additionally, participants leveraged social capital they accrued from Latino and non-Latino peer networks to sustain their cultural wealth and to exercise diverse citizenship by supporting other marginalized communities. Implications for research and practice focus on increasing Latino undergraduate men's success by capitalizing on the knowledge, skills, and resources they possess and use to foster interpersonal thriving.

- The Journal of The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition is a semiannual refereed journal providing current research on the first college year and other significant student transitions. The primary purpose of the Journal is to disseminate empirical research findings on student transition issues that inform practice in all sectors of postsecondary education, such as explorations into the academic, personal, and social experiences (including outcomes related to success, learning, and development) of students at a range of transition points throughout the college years; transition issues unique to specific populations (e.g., non-traditional, traditional, historically underrepresented students, transfer students, commuters, part-time students); and explorations of faculty development, curriculum, and pedagogical innovations connected to college transitions.
