The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate the factors that contribute to the persistence to graduation of African American males from college who have been involved in the student conduct process. Currently, this specific subtopic within the overall subject of African American collegiate male persistence is under-researched. Given the attention on African American male persistence at the elementary and secondary level and the intersection of the high school-to-prison pipeline as well as the disproportionate incarceration rate of African American males in the United States prison system, this topic was ready for study.
