dc.description.abstractUtilizing the notion of community cultural wealth (Yosso, 2005), this study focuses on the various forms of capital that Mexican American students from the South Texas Border draw upon within their community to navigate the college choice process. Findings indicate that neighbors, church members, and in one case a physician served as sources of social capital, while students drew upon resistant and aspirational capital to deal with racial/ethnic stereotypes and negative perceptions of local/regional universities.en_US
