Helping Males Succeed in College: Male's Experiences of Mattering and Marginalization
Roger Schieferecke, Associate Director for Student Services, KAMS & Card, K.A. (2013)
The College Student Affairs Journal. 31, (2).

Perceptions of mattering and marginalization are significant to the male experience of college.  Quantitative studies regarding the gap between women's and men's achievements in education are common in research.  However, there are fewer qualitative studies focusing on male college students' experiences.  This qualitative study investigates 21 male students' perceptions of mattering and marginalization during their college experience at a research university in the Great Plains, where the majority of students were women.
