Kimberly Griffin is an Associate Professor in the Higher Education, Student Affairs, and International Education Policy Program Student Affairs Area of Specialization. The first section focuses on the ways in which student-faculty interaction has been studied and defined in previous scholarship, noting ways these relationships are distinctive for people of color. Origins and uses of intersectionality While intersectionality can provide a framework for integrated analysis of the interconnected realities of many social identities, it historically has involved particular attention to the central roles of race and gender. But one idea in particular— relationality—holds special promise for the work of educating for democracy. In the final section, three chapters chronicle the findings and outcomes associated with the Equity for All project, which documents the use and findings of the Equity Scorecard across a group of community colleges. He has provided congressional testimony regarding the Higher Education Reauthorization Act and No Child Left Behind, informed state policy decisions related to selective college admissions, and his research has been solicited to inform U.
However, there is little research exploring their experiences as they make decisions about whether and where they will attend college. The last two chapters offer the reflections of scholars and administrators who participated in the Equity Scorecard process. Research and theory are clearly utilized in developing a series of strategies by which campus administrators can improve educational environments. As our nation becomes increasingly diverse, so do our college campuses. Increasing biomedical workforce diversity remains a persistent challenge.

Whereas many students perceived the unique benefits of ethnically focused groups, some students, particularly those who were not first generation immigrants, found these groups exclusionary. The rare and pioneering international reach of this book crosses four continents. Relationality allows for the interconnected interrogation of difference, identity, and power relations and the conflicts they entail. Always timely and comprehensive, New Directions for Institutional Research provides planners and administrators in all types of academic institutions with guidelines in such areas as resource coordination, information analysis, program evaluation, and institutional management. Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, 53 1 , 26-38. It would be hard to find anyone working in American colleges and universities who would disagree that the demographics of higher education are changing. His books include Using Qualitative Methods in Institutional Assessment 2007 with Shaun R.
Trends indicate that men with lower incomes, less confidence, and less ideal academic records are increasingly unlikely to be present on college campuses. Harper and Quaye have also included several first-time authors in the long tradition of scholar-practitioners in higher education. Factors contributing to engagement included positive faculty interactions, desire to make connections on campus and the need to acquire real world work experience. Maramba , Using Mixed Methods to Study Intersectionality in Higher Education Forthcoming, 2011 with Kimberly A. Gaining greater awareness on these aspects of self inform modern leadership challenges.
The authors write from their own perspectives as students in American higher education supported by research and professional experiences. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Social Research Methodology. Always timely and comprehensive, New Directions for Institutional Research provides planners and administrators in all types of academic institutions with guidelines in such areas as resource coordination, information analysis, program evaluation, and institutional management. The sustained emphasis on activism and practice reasserts the potency of intersectionality borne out of Black feminism. Specifically, his current research is aimed at understanding the role of institutional environments in minority college student adjustment, engagement, and persistence. Black undergraduates from Bakke to Grutter: Freshmen status, trends and prospects, 1971- 2004.
Students more often chose to meaningfully engage in culturally based organizations, differentiating between groups with a racial and ethnic focus. First, he discusses the utility of mixed-methods approaches and intersectionality research in studying college access. This was of course a problem in and of itself, but for black women the consequences were compounded. Little work has addressed the ways in which race and gender intersect and shape Black professors' experiences as they seek professional advancement. The politics of identity operates at the individual, group, regional, and national levels. Their book is ideal for institutions and institutional researchers who want to understand and most effectively serve their students and faculty. Over 90 instruments were reviewed and examined for their attention to multiple dimensions of the campus climate, diversity initiatives, and outcomes measures that capture students' values, skills, and knowledge for participation in a diverse society.
Me and my family: Ethnic differences and familial influences on academic motivations of Black collegians. Here, the authors address learning from responses to ethical dilemmas, using more modern case studies to illustrate the increasing complexity of morality in society. However, literature largely addresses the role of faculty mentors, less often considering peer mentors in the law school context. These include peer-reviewed articles accepted in The Review of Higher Education, Teachers College Record, the Journal of College Student Development, and the Journal of College Student Retention. Overarchingly, it has the potential to reveal the power dynamics within the melting pot, whose hegemonic place in the American imagination has continually thwarted our achievement of a complex, pluralistic, relational national identity. Given the complexity of and diversity within the Asian American population, scholars have begun to underscore the importance of disaggregating data in the empirical examination of Asian Americans, but most of those… In this article, the authors demonstrate how researchers can integrate qualitative and quantitative methods to gain a deeper understanding of the prevalence and nature of cultural taxation among black professors.
I have engaged with many students, scholars, and student affairs professionals who are excited about intersectionality and its potential to offer deeper insights into the experiences of individuals from marginalized populations and how structures function to maintain the disparities we observe. Subsequent chapters illustrate the multiple ways in which qualitative and quantitative methods can be integrated to understand the complexity of identity and experiences of marginalized groups in the academy. Twenty-eight black professors employed at two large public research universities participated in this study. Prior to the late 1970s, higher education institutions reserved academic program slots for underrepresented minority students because these students had limited access to opportunities that afforded them credentials that their white counterparts could more…. Although readers can debate the relative responsibility of individual students for their own engagement, Harper and Quaye intentionally and provocatively place the onus for student engagement on the institution. I assert further that intersectionality, in terms of the deployment of the categories of race, gender, and class, along with nation and diaspora, informs the use of interdisciplinarity.
The final chapter of part 3, Understanding and Renewing Complex Organizations, focuses. Resting on the premise that we cannot work for the liberation of individuals, communities and societies without intersectionality, this book asks: How does intersectionality challenge the structures and discourses of social work education, management and organisation? First, we reviewed literature on the experiences of African American male high-school students and the common barriers facing their matriculation to college. Findings suggest distinctions across ethnicity and generational status in how black students perceive the influence of their social identities on their academic motivation. In dispelling such misconceptions as that Asian Americans are not really racial minorities, the book opens up the complexity of the racial and ethnic minorities within this group, and identifies the unique challenges that require the attention of anyone in higher education concerned with student access and success, as well as the pipeline to the professoriate. The text includes theoretical and conceptual chapters on intersectionality; empirical research using intersectionality frameworks; and chapters focusing on intersectional practices. Indirect barriers to engagement were related to the campus climate and included themes related to negative peer interactions, stereotype threat, and the use of shifting as a coping mechanism. For scientists with low interest in faculty careers, a combination of values, shared across social identity, and structural dynamics of the biomedical workforce e.
Objective performance and quality of advisor relationships were not significantly different between scientists with high versus low interest in faculty careers. However, this excitement is tempered at times by difficulties determining how to ask research questions, design studies, and analyze data in ways that leverage the strengths of intersectionality as a frame. While comprehensive in scope and. Second, we review theoretical perspectives useful in understanding the motivation and outcomes of student-faculty relationships.
