Rodriguez, Awilda; McGuire, Keon M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019

Abrica, Elvira J.; Hatch-Tocaimaza, Deryl K. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
The campus climate literature obscures the complexity of individuals' perspectives in relation to multiple dimensions of the broader learning environment.

Parker, Tara L.; Neville, Kathleen M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Due to the underrepresentation of African American teachers and college faculty, students have limited to no interaction with Blacks as authority figures in the classroom.

Though numerous studies have identified factors associated with academic misconduct, few have proposed conceptual models that could make sense of multiple factors. In this study, we used structural equation modeling (SEM) to test a conceptual model of five factors using data from a relatively large sample of 2,503 college students. The results…
