Rodriguez, Awilda; McGuire, Keon M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Despite policy efforts to increase Advanced Placement (AP) course-taking among Black students, gaps in AP course-taking persist.

Using national…

This study employed the career capital framework (DeFillippi & Arthur, 1994; Inkson & Arthur, 2001) and the associated three ways of knowing adapted for community colleges: "knowing why" (aspirations), "knowing how" (knowledge and skills), and "knowing whom" (sources of information). The authors constructed an…

Vaccaro, Annemarie; Kimball, Ezekiel; Newman, Barbara M.; Moore, Adam; Troiano, Peter F. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Although scholars have noted that disability is a multivalent construct that is experienced intersectionally, very little intersectional research exists about the growing population of diverse college students with disabilities. This grounded theory study elucidates how the intersections of social class and ability shaped purpose development for…

Patton, Lori D.; Sánchez, Berenice; Mac, Jacqueline; Stewart, D.-L. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Predominantly white institutions (PWIs) have increasingly implemented formalized diversity initiatives over the past 50 years as a response to ensuing federal legislation (e.g., 1965 Higher Education Act), student protests of the late 1960s, and the influx of Black students into PWIs. These initiatives were established to support students from…

Sotirin, Patty; Goltz, Sonia M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
We employ a feminist phenomenological methodology to explore the lived meaningfulness of the academic dual career. We contend that university approaches to resolving the "problem" of dual career fail to address partners' long-term commitments and shared challenges. Following an analysis of focus group interviews with dual career academic…

Zhang, Hong; Kmec, Julie A.; Byington, Tori – Review of Higher Education, 2019
We investigated the extent to which dual-career academics' job related decisions considered the career of their partner with close attention to the relevance of gender in the process. Analyses using survey data from faculty in seven U.S. universities found that among those recruited to the university first (primary recruits), women who perceived…

Posselt, Julie R. – Review of Higher Education, 2018
Privileging elite academic pedigrees in graduate admissions preserves racial and socioeconomic inequities that many institutions say they wish to reduce. To understand this preference, I integrate across perspectives on trust in rational choice, social capital, and social network theories, and use the resulting framework to interpret 68 interviews…

This paper presents an analysis of the effects of in-state resident tuition (IRT) policies, which allow undocumented immigrants to pay in-state rather than out-of state tuition, on when and where undocumented immigrant students enroll, and how they finance their education. We identify effects based on differences in pre- and post-policy outcomes…
