Spurgeon, S. L. (2009). Wellness and College Type in African American Male College Students: An Examination of Differences. Journal of College Counseling, 12(1), 33-43.

PWI students scored significantly higher than did HBCU students on Sense of Worth. Implications and future research directions are suggested. (Contains 2 tables.)
