  • Generational Perceptions of Campus Climate Among LGBTQ Undergraduates
    • Abstract: In recent years, climate studies examining the narratives of underrepresented students on campus have proliferated. Scholars have documented the prevalence of institutional resources and overall cultures of campus environments in shaping perceptions for historically marginalized communities (e.g., Huh & Kuh, 2003; Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005; Sue, 2010; Umbach & Kuh, 2006). Particularly in regards to the experience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, and queer (LGBTQ) students, current research discourse presents a grand narrative of progressive change, greater access to resources, increased programming, and growing multicultural competence (Fine, 2012; Marine, 2011; Rankin, Weber, & Garvey, 2015). Over the past 50 ... Read More

  • Kaleidoscope Views: Using the Theoretical Borderlands to Understand the
           Experiences of Gay Cis-Men
    • Abstract: Understanding the lived experiences of a diverse array of college students is a consistent aim of student affairs researchers and practitioners (Torres, Jones, & Renn, 2009). It is important to examine the experiences of those students who hold different social identities as they continue to enter, navigate, exist within, resist, and exit postsecondary education, particularly those students with marginalized identities. While a fair amount of literature continues to emerge on the developmental processes and experiences of those with minoritized and marginalized identities in higher education, there continues to be a dearth of research using critical perspectives that situate "social identities as products of ...

  • Enhancing, Inhibiting, and Maintaining Voice: An Examination of Student
           Affairs Graduate Students' Self-Authorship Journeys
    • Abstract: Master's-level education is a vital tool for creating a knowledgeable and highly skilled workforce that is capable of responding to complex problems in the 21st century (Wendler et al., 2010). The distinct focus on cultivating professional knowledge and skills during graduate training is intended to equip those with master's degrees to address problems of practice in a range of fields including education, business, allied health, and public policy. With this in mind, master's degree programs, including those in student affairs, play a pivotal role in socializing individuals to their fields of study and in producing effective practitioners.Although there is wide recognition that master's degree programs are critical ...

  • The Effects of Viewpoint Diversity and Racial Diversity on Need for
           Cognition
    • Abstract: Prior diversity research has focused on a variety of learning outcomes such as critical thinking, problem solving, and intellectual ability (Antonio, 2004; Bowman, 2009; Cole & Zhou, 2014; Denson & Chang, 2009; Gurin, 1999; Hurtado, 2003; Nelson Laird, 2005; Pascarella et al., 2014; Umbach & Kuh, 2006). Yet greater understanding of the effects of diversity on need for cognition is warranted because of its vital relationship to learning. Need for cognition reflects motivation to expend effort on problem solving, reasoning, and gathering information, all of which contribute to learning (Cacioppo, Petty, Feinstein, & Jarvis, 1996). Students without a strong need for cognition are likely to do minimal work in college ... Read More

  • Geographic Constructions of Race: The Midwest Asian American Students
           Union
    • Abstract: Asian American college students have a robust history of organizing and sustaining student-initiated conferences. Since 1978, with the establishment of two regional conferences on the West and East coasts (Liu, Geron, & Lai, 2008), these events have attracted thousands of attendees annually. They are unique in their organizational structure as they work outside traditional campus-based structures and receive no permanent institutional funding, support, or guidance from student leaders' home campuses.The growth of these intercollegiate organizations reflect their value to Asian American students as spaces to articulate, share, and gain support for their racialized experiences in higher education. Although racial ... Read More

  • ¿Pertenezco a esta Universidad': The Mediating Role of Belonging for
           Collective Self-Esteem and Mattering for Latin@ Undergraduates
    • Abstract: Latin@s* represent the largest ethnic minority group in the United States, yet their representation at 4-year institutions remains low (Fry & Taylor, 2013). Despite the increase in college enrollment, they are less likely to enroll in a 4-year institution, enroll as a full-time student, or complete a bachelor's degree in comparison to White students (Fry & Taylor, 2013). Latin@ first-generation college students (FGCS) encounter a myriad of systemic oppressions and institutional barriers in higher education (Kohli, Johnson, & Pérez Huber, 2006; Stanton-Salazar, 2011), and in turn are considered at risk for nonpersistence and lower degree attainment than continuing-generation college peers (Reyes & Nora, 2012; Saenz ...

  • Finding My Way: Perceptions of Institutional Support and Belonging in
           Low-Income, First-Generation, First-Year College Students
    • Abstract: Despite improvements in the rates of college admission over the last few decades, college persistence and attainment gaps persist between low-income, first-generation college students and their more affluent counterparts with a family history of college (e.g., Cahalan & Perna, 2015; Engle & Tinto, 2008; Kena et al., 2014). Even after successfully navigating high school, such students often experience overt and covert forms of classism, racism, and other oppression related to marginalized identities in their college communities (e.g., Pyne & Means, 2013; Quaye, Griffin, & Museus, 2015; Vaccaro & Newman, 2016). These manifest both in personal relationships and within academic classrooms, where inaccurate assumptions ... Read More

  • Cumbersome Yet Worthwhile: Service Learning in Postdisaster Rehabilitation
           and Recovery Efforts in the Philippines
    • Abstract: Rebuilding communities through postdisaster rehabilitation and recovery efforts has been an urgent concern in countries where natural calamities commonly occur. These efforts require not only committed actions from the government and its public officials but also, more importantly, from its citizens; thus, it has become imperative that each individual is not only prepared to respond in situations when tragedy strikes but also to meet the daily challenges of an increasingly interconnected yet fragmented world (Delanty, 2000). In effect, institutions of higher education are expected to prepare students as "versatile, socially conscious, critical thinking and civic-minded . . . who [are] able to solve problems not ...

  • Not All Anxiety is the Same: How Different "Types" of Anxiety Uniquely
           Associate With College Students' Drinking Intentions
    • Abstract: Heavy drinking is prevalent and poses significant health problems for the lives of university students in the United States (National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism [NIAAA], 2015). For example, 35.4% of a nationwide sample of college students reported drinking heavily (i.e., consuming 5 or more drinks in a sitting) in the previous 2 weeks (Johnston, O'Malley, Bachman, Schulenberg, & Miech, 2015). Death, injury, assault, and sexual abuse are just a few of the health risks and negative consequences associated with heavy drinking (NIAAA, 2015). Students' continued heavy drinking despite adverse consequences leads researchers to seek an underlying reason for persistent heavy drinking at universities ... Read More

  • The Language-Related Academic Self-Confidence of Noncitizen Students in US
           Higher Education
    • Abstract: Given the increasing diversity in US universities, understanding the relationship between academic self-confidence (ASC) and undergraduate student traits like gender, race, and socioeconomic status is vital, though few studies to date have covered this deeply (see Antonio, 2004; Sax, 1994; Sax, Kanny, Riggers-Piehl, Whang, & Paulson, 2015). There is longstanding "recognition that self-concept is a crucial variable in the educational process," which is true whether it is "considered an outcome itself or as an important moderating influence on achievement" (Pascarella, Smart, Ethington, & Nettles, 1987, p. 50). Researchers examining the influence of various college experiences on ASC—for example, the influence of ... Read More

  • Time Use During First Year of College Predicts Participation in
           High-Impact Activities During Later Years
    • Abstract: The value of a college education depends on the experiences and opportunities students engage in over the course of their college career (Kuh, Hu, & Vesper, 2000; Kuh, Kinzie, Buckley, Bridges, & Hayek, 2006), and the transition to college is a particularly important time as it sets the stage for students' academic and personal success in the years to come (Tinto, 2007). To increase student engagement, many universities are adopting high-impact educational practices that include study abroad opportunities, faculty mentoring, internships, service learning, challenging coursework, and research experiences; these institutions are also intentionally promoting high-impact cocurricular activities such as community ...

  • Careers in Student Affairs: A Holistic Guide to Professional Development
           in Higher Education ed. by Peggy C. Holzweiss and Kelli Peck Parrott
           (review)
    • Abstract: Socialization into student affairs has recently been a focus of research about the field (Hirschy, Wilson, Liddell, Boyle, & Pasquesi, 2015). During socialization processes, one identifies how to become a professional in that field, including what competencies are necessary to begin and succeed in conducting such work. Additionally, professionals learn the need for ongoing professional engagement and development (Armino & Ortiz, 2017; Carpenter, 2003), including what activities may help them enhance desired professional competencies (Evans & Ranero, 2009; Roberts, 2007). While professional development has long been part of expectations of the field (Brown, 1987; Hirt & Creamer, 1998), a gap has always lingered: ... Read More

  • Higher Education and Society ed. by Joseph L. DeVitis and Pietro A. Sasso
           (review)
    • Abstract: In Higher Education and Society, editors DeVitis and Sasso ask "What are the influences of higher education on society—and what are the influences of society on higher education'" (p. 1). They acknowledge the difficulty in parsing such a question, yet they do so to impose what results in a fairly fluid organizational framework for the 14 chapters comprising the book.Like their previously coedited volume (Sasso & DeVitis, 2015), DeVitis and Sasso ground this work in the increasingly commodified context of contemporary higher education, though several chapters advance other important themes and ideas. Assembled authors include longtime and emergent scholars and leaders representing various institutional types ... Read More
