Abstract

Eighty-three first-year Latino students from seven institutions participated in this qualitative study of the familial influences on identity development. Using grounded theory methodology, the category of Situating Identity is further explored by looking specifically at the condition called Generation in the United States and Familial Influences and the impact this condition has on how Latino first-year students situate their ethnic identity. The condition is described through three properties that explain the continuous dimension: Acculturated Parents, Less Acculturated Parents, White Parent or Parents.
