Lucy Arellano conducts research on persistence, retention, and degree completion for emerging majority students.  Concepts of diversity, campus climates, campus engagement, and student co-curricular involvement ground her work.  Furthermore, she examines campus environments and how institutional agency influences student success.  Her current and future work also investigates student mobility across multiple colleges/universities and varying institutional types.
