DesJardins, Stephen L.; Toutkoushian, Robert K.; Hossler, Donald; Chen, Jin – Review of Higher Education, 2019
There is a little information about whether and if so how student aspirations for college change over time. We introduce a conceptual model to explain how student aspirations may change over time, utilize panel methods to examine the extent to which this happens during high school, and investigate which factors are associated with such changes. We…

Routon, P. Wesley; Walker, Jay K. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Social Greek letter organizations, known as fraternities and sororities, are prevalent fixtures on college campuses in the United States, and have been shown to alter academic, health-related, and social behaviors. Research has often focused on within-college effects due to data availability. Here, we examine how membership corresponds to…

Raza, Syeda S.; Williams, Zyshia; Katsiaficas, Dalal; Saravia, Lydia A. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Undocumented students are barred from accessing financial aid and face enormous obstacles in completing college (Gonzales, 2009). However, in 2011, California passed the California DREAM Act that granted undocumented students access to state financial aid (California Student Aid Commission, 2016). The purpose of this study was to examine the…

Li, Amy Y.; Ortagus, Justin C. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
In 2010, Tennessee enacted the Complete College Tennessee Act (CCTA), which increased the proportion of state performance-based funding from 5.45% to 85% and added a 40% funding premium for progression and degree completions by adult students and low-income students.

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…

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. Unexamined are the ways students from marginalized backgrounds may "respond" to oppressive dimensions of the campus climates in unique ways that moderate observed outcome differences.…

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of prestige seeking on access for Black and Latino students at urban-serving universities, addressing gaps in the literature to raise questions as to the extent to which prestige seeking is detrimental to achieving equity goals. To do so, I used an OLS [ordinary least squares] regression with…

Ledesma, María C. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
In the shadow of the Supreme Court's decision to uphold raceconscious policies in "Fisher v. University of Texas" (2016), and midway to Justice O'Connor's 25-year sunset clause in "Grutter v. Bollinger" (2003), affirmative action remains contentious. This qualitative theoretical study posits that we need not speculate about…
