This study tracked five cohorts of first-year students for six years after their initial enrollment to determine how many, by gender and race, were academically suspended for failure to remain in academic good standing, how many of those returned, and of those who returned, how many graduated. The study revealed that a significantly greater percentage of males than females and a significantly greater percentage of minority (African-American) than non-minority (Caucasian) students were academically suspended.
