Myaamia Center Faculty Affiliates Study Effect of Self-Identity on College Success

November 6, 2014.
Heather Beattey, of the OARS Research News of Miami University, has written an informative article about the importance of self-identity for Native students to achieve college success.

"Among the pair’s initial findings are that in contrast to the low – below 20% on average – federally-reported graduation rates of Native Americans from most non-tribal colleges, the graduation rate of Myaamia students from Miami University is much higher – 75% in 2012. They attribute much of this success to a series of one-credit-hour courses Miami Indian Heritage Award recipients are required to take each semester for the majority of their tenure at the University."
