Thank You Dissertation Chairs! - Someone Quoted My Dissertation!

Today, I wrote this e-mail to my dissertation chairs...

I am writing my weekly blog entry for the TACUSPA blog ( and I always include recent dissertations published from Texas institutions focused on the monthly topic. So, I am searching for HBCUs and HSIs in Texas and I discovered on ProQuest that someone quoted my dissertation back in 2008!

The Dissertation:
Muldrow, A.. Achievement motivation in African American college students. Psy.D. dissertation, Old Dominion University, United States -- Virginia. Retrieved April 17, 2010, from Dissertations & Theses: Full Text.(Publication No. AAT 3338396).

The Citation:

However researchers have noted that, for African
American college students, it is their relationship with faculty members, (esp. African American)
which is key in improving their ability to cope with these experiences to succeed academically
(Edwards, 2007; Smith 2003).

Her Reference Citation:
Edwards, J. (2007). Supports for and barriers to on-time graduation as perceived by
african american undergraduate students at historically black colleges and
universities and historically white colleges and universities. Doctoral
Dissertation, Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, Texas.

Yay! This just made my day! You should be proud!
