  • A Cross-Cultural Evaluation of Ethnic Identity Exploration and Commitment
    • Abstract: The development of a secure identity has been identified as a key milestone for young adults and has been associated with mental and behavioral health outcomes (Phinney, 1990). One aspect of identity that has received increasing attention in research on development is ethnic identity. To date, research findings on the relation between ethnic identity and mental and behavioral health have been inconsistent (Rivas-Drake et al., 2014; Torres & Ong, 2010; Umaña-Taylor, 2011). Different aspects of ethnic identity (e.g., exploration, resolution, pride) have been associated with positive psychosocial (e.g., positive self-esteem) and academic functioning (e.g., greater interest in learning, higher academic ...

  • Fostering Academic Success of First-Year Students: Exploring the Roles of
           Motivation, Race, and Faculty
    • Abstract: Ample psychological literature has documented the importance of noncognitive factors, including academic motivation, for student success (see a review in Robbins, Lauver, Le, Langley, & Carlstrom, 2004); however, these insights have not received much attention in higher education research. Student outcomes in higher education have been understood primarily within the frameworks developed by Pascarella (1985), Tinto (1993), and Astin (1993). These frameworks place substantial attention on students’ experiences in college but often neglect the social–psychological dimensions, such as academic motivation (Guiffrida, 2006). Notwithstanding increasing calls to incorporate academic motivation into ... Read More

  • A Breath of Fresh Air: Students’ Perceptions of Interactions With
           African American Faculty
    • Abstract: Despite increases in the numbers of students of color across institutions of higher education, faculty of color remain woefully under-represented within higher education as they compose just 18% of the full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty in the United States (U.S. Department of Education, 2009–2010). Of this 18%, African American faculty represent fewer than a quarter of these faculty members. As a group, faculty of color are more likely than their White colleagues to conduct research on issues of race, to utilize active teaching methods, to incorporate class readings on issues of race and ethnicity (Milem, 1999), to engage students in diversity-related activities, and to interact with students ...

  • Internal Voices, External Constraints: Exploring the Impact of Military
           Service on Student Development
    • Abstract: The numbers of active duty service members and veterans enrolling in postsecondary education have been increasing due to U.S. involvement in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom and their subsequent drawdowns (Church, 2009). Yet despite this influx of student veterans and the current emphasis on student development, college educators know very little about how military experience affects the individual development of veterans transitioning to higher education. Most of the student veteran literature focuses on service delivery (e.g., Branker, 2009; DiRamio & Spires, 2009; Shackelford, 2009), physical or psychological disabilities (e.g., Barry, Whiteman, & MacDermid Wadsworth, 2012; Church, 2009; ...

  • “Managing by Not Managing”: How Gay Engineering Students Manage Sexual
           Orientation Identity
    • Abstract: The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (2012) projected that the United States will need to fill an estimated half million job openings in engineering by 2018; however, persistent systemic inequities that affect engineering degree completion impede this goal, leading to an engineering workforce that is majority male and White (National Academy of Sciences, 2011; National Science Board, 2014). For instance, although under-represented racial and ethnic minority students aspire to degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at rates equivalent to or higher than their White and Asian American peers (Hurtado et al., 2006), these students complete STEM degrees at much ...

  • Posttraumatic Growth Moderates Suicide Risk Among Trauma Exposed
           Undergraduates
    • Abstract: Over 1,000 college students die by suicide each year (American College Health Association, 2012; Schwartz, 2006; Suicide Prevention Resource Center, 2004) with 8.0% to 15.0% of college students reporting a previous suicide attempt (Wilcox et al., 2010), 7.1% having seriously considered and 1.2% attempting, suicide at least once in the past 12 months (American College Health Association, 2012). Suicide is typically listed as the second or third leading cause of death in the United States for college-age individuals (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2013; Schwartz, 2006; Suicide Prevention Resource Center, 2004). Suicidal behavior among college students is a major public health concern in ... Read More

  • Victimization and Substance Use Among Native American College Students
    • Abstract: Historically, education has been a tool used by the federal government to forcibly assimilate Native Americans and eradicate their culture, the ramifications of which can be seen in the low enrollment and low retention rates of Native American college students in the 20th century (Reyhner & Eder, 2004; Wright & Tierney, 1991). Although rates have been on the rise, they remain low in the present day, with Native Americans being the most underrepresented ethnic group among college students (Executive Office of the President, 2014). According to Tribal Critical Race Theory (Brayboy, 2005), the low retention rates experienced by Native American students are due to the systemic barriers and racism encountered at ... Read More

  • Personalized Outreach to University Students With a History of Reading
           Difficulties: Early Screening and Outreach to Support Academically At-Risk
           Students
    • Abstract: As the student population in universities becomes increasingly diverse (e.g., Lewis, Farris, & Greene, 1999), there is growing emphasis on identifying and supporting students likely to experience academic challenges early in their university experience (e.g., Noel-Levitz, Inc., 2007). Even with the use of early alert systems, universities are left to rely on relatively late indicators of need for support, such as course failure and poor class attendance (e.g., Heisserer & Parette, 2002). We report here on an empirical evaluation of a proactive approach to early identification and personalized outreach. We identified first-year students who reported a history of reading difficulties early in the academic ... Read More

  • The Role of Self-Efficacy for Bystander Helping Behaviors in Risky Alcohol
           Situations
    • Abstract: The bystander effect, or diffusion of responsibility, refers to the phenomenon in which individuals are less likely to help others in emergency situations if other people are present (Latané & Darley, 1970). This effect is concerning in college environments because serious alcohol-related consequences are likely to occur in contexts where many students are present and drinking (e.g., parties, drinking games, and birthday celebrations; Neighbors, Foster, Fossos, & Lewis, 2012). The bystander effect may result in individuals’ failure to intervene when their peers are engaged in hazardous alcohol consumption; thus, it is important to understand the factors associated with helping others and to develop ...

  • Use of the Motivation and Engagement Scale–University/College as a Means
           of Identifying Student Typologies
    • Abstract: We investigated whether the Motivation and Engagement Scale–University/College (MESUC; Martin, 2009) is suitable for identifying student typologies. This is expected to assist in determining which students may most benefit from intervention or assistance programs. Identifying disengaged students is important for higher education institutions due to increasing requirements to improve student retention, persistence, and course completion (Bradley, Noonan, Nugent, & Scales, 2008). Greater academic engagement contributes to greater academic success and greater likelihood to successfully complete education (Astin & Sax, 1998; Kuh, Cruce, Shoup, Kinzie, & Gonyea, 2008). The MES-UC is used to assess ... Read More

  • Mission-Driven Collaboration Between Academic and Student Affairs in
           Community Colleges
    • Abstract: A survey of the literature surrounding collaborations between student affairs and academic affairs confirms that student learning is the focus of most collaboration that exists, as these two aspects of the campus community work together to better facilitate learning (American College Personnel Association, 1994; Guarasci, 2001; Hyman, 1995; Kuh, 1996; Schmidt & Kaufman, 2005).While there has been and continues to be substantial scholarship focused on collaboration between academic and student affairs units in the academy, few have addressed those collaborations in the community college setting, which is not surprising given the disconnect between the community college system and the larger research ...

  • Intersectionality in Educational Research by Dannielle Joy Davis, Rachelle
           J. Brunn-Bevel and James L. Olive (review)
    • Abstract: Intersectionality is gaining traction as a critical concept in higher education, generally, and student affairs specifically. Intersectionality can be extremely difficult to define, but is perhaps best understood as unique ways in which the confluence of an individual’s identities exposes them to unique forms of privilege and marginalization (Davis, Brunn-Bevel, & Olive, 2015). The term was coined by Kimberle Crenshaw (1991) as she described how women of color are often left out of efforts to promote equity and justice for women (where the focus is largely on White women) or people of color (where the focus is largely on men). Work on intersectionality continues to largely center race and gender; however ... Read More

  • Student Life as Relational Networks. Connecting in College: How Friendship
           Networks Matter for Academic and Social Success by Janice M. McCabe
           (review)
    • Abstract: As student affairs practitioners and researchers, we are often taught to view our campuses as communities of individuals. Our counseling backgrounds prompt us to see individual differences, take into account individual circumstances, and work with students on a case-by-case basis. Likewise, our research training prompts an autonomous agentic view of students whereby we presume independent decision-making and action amidst varying contexts and environments that make up the college milieu. And further, we all base much of our current work on a foundation of empirical and theoretical literature that for over half a century has reinforced an independent-individual conception of college student behavior. This bias ... Read More
