Wiki Version:
<p>Despite their increasing enrollment, underrepresented (UR) students still graduate from university at lower rates than do non-underrepresented students. One proposed explanation for this difference is a sense of mismatch that UR students feel in the situational context of attending a university (Walton & Cohen, 2011). Schmader and Sedikides (2018) proposed that people experience psychological fit in an environment along three dimensions: self-concept fit, goal fit, and social fit. Adapting this model to the college environment, a new instrument was developed to assess the degree to which UR students experience self-concept, goal, and social fit in a university environment (the Student Fit in a College Environment instrument; S’FICE; Munasinghe & Mackie, 2020). The instrument was administered to females in STEM majors, Black students, first generation students, and Latinx students via an online data collection service and instrument response data were collected. We found that data generated by UR students on the S’FICE instrument fit better with a two-factor model than the three-factor model proposed by SAFE.</p>
