The scope of this research focuses on a sample of undergraduate university students who attended the Westchester campuses of Pace University in New York to determine the relative significance of ethnicity in the educational and professional options perceived by Italian-American vs. non-Italian-American respondents. Their family traditions were examined, and patterns of behavior impacting choices of pre-professional vs. non pre-professional employment were identified. The result of this research underscores the need for specialized counseling and mentoring strategies to enable more traditional Italian-American students to fully develop their potential both academically and professionally.
