Abstract:Major findings suggest that (a) graduate students arrive in their departments and programs with pre-established expectations and motivations that are the result of earlier socialization experiences; (b) if students perceive that the dominant culture in their department is not congruent with their own beliefs and values, they might resist complete socialization into the culture and thus be less likely to feel integrated or connected to their department; and (c) students who are highly committed to achieving their educational and occupational goals are likely to complete their graduate programs, even if they do not feel a sense of connectedness to their department or subdivision.
