Building Bridges: Epistemic Violence And Mother–Daughter Pedagogies From The U.S.–Mexico Border, Tanya J. Gaxiola Serrano, Elvia Serrano Nov 2020

Building Bridges: Epistemic Violence And Mother–Daughter Pedagogies From The U.S.–Mexico Border, Tanya J. Gaxiola Serrano, Elvia Serrano

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

Living in the U.S.–Mexico borderlands, residents have intimately learned about the impact of the militarized policing of the physical border on their lives. While not often discussed, the policing transcends the border institution and targets the ways of knowing of People and Immigrants of Color. This essay features pláticas between two Mexican women educators from the border, la frontera, to challenge epistemic violence on the lives of U.S. Chicanas/Latinas. Intergenerational pedagogies of a mother–daughter dyad from the Tijuana–San Diego region serve as exemplars of the survival and resistance found in the borderlands. The narratives ...


The Black Feminist Mixtape: A Collective Black Feminist Autoethnography Of Black Women's Existence In The Academy, Erica R. Wallace, J'Nai D. Adams, Carla Cadet Fullwood, Erica-Brittany Horhn, Camaron Loritts, Brandy S. Propst, Coretta Roseboro Walker Nov 2020

The Black Feminist Mixtape: A Collective Black Feminist Autoethnography Of Black Women's Existence In The Academy, Erica R. Wallace, J'Nai D. Adams, Carla Cadet Fullwood, Erica-Brittany Horhn, Camaron Loritts, Brandy S. Propst, Coretta Roseboro Walker

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

Seven Black women graduate students from across different functional areas of higher education work in solidarity to write a collective Black Feminist Autoethnography (BFA) (Griffin, 2012) about our experiences at our respective colleges and universities. BFA is a "theoretical and methodological means for Black female academics to critically narrate the pride and pain of Black womanhood" (Griffin, 2012, p. 1). This article centers Black feminist scholarship as a framework to reflexively interpret how we as seven Black women navigate within, against, and beyond the academy to address dominant narratives that affect our professional and personal experiences. We use contemporary music ...


(Re)Negotiating And (Re)Envisioning Our Feminist Journeys: A Collaborative Autoethnography Of Five Women Of Color Doctoral Students, Dajanae Palmer, Ting-Han Chang, Megan Covington, Vanessa Na, Amy C. Wang Nov 2020

(Re)Negotiating And (Re)Envisioning Our Feminist Journeys: A Collaborative Autoethnography Of Five Women Of Color Doctoral Students, Dajanae Palmer, Ting-Han Chang, Megan Covington, Vanessa Na, Amy C. Wang

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

This study utilizes critical collaborative autoethnography to explore the development, identity, and experiences as a feminist from five Women of Color doctoral students. Given that existing research on the experiences of doctoral women of color remains sparse, the purpose of this study is to expand the knowledge by highlighting and validating the lived experiences of doctoral women of color in the academy from a feminist perspective. Through the use of collaborative autoethnography, the authors explore and interrogate their individual journeys as self-identified or aspiring feminists. The findings present the living reality and complexity involving history, contexts, intersection of identities, conflicts ...


The Role Of Race In Urban Community-University Relationships: Moving From Interest Convergence To Critical Literacy, Jake D. Winfield, James Earl Davis Nov 2020

The Role Of Race In Urban Community-University Relationships: Moving From Interest Convergence To Critical Literacy, Jake D. Winfield, James Earl Davis

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

Recent decades have seen an increased involvement of institutions of higher education in their communities. Previous scholarship on community engaged scholarship and anchor institutions often fails to consider race, racism, and racial power dynamics. We analyze interviews with the program director of a critical community engaged scholarship initiative as part of a multi-year community-led collaboration between an urban, historically White institution and its adjacent community using the critical race theory tenet of interest convergence and critical literacy. We find that the university's relationship with the local community is troubling to residents, especially frequent student projects and university-initiated neighborhood safety ...


“Diversity & Inclusion & Free Speech & Civility”: Oppression And Marginalization Through Diversity Rhetoric, Kamden Strunk, Hannah Carson Baggett, Ivan E. Watts Nov 2020

“Diversity & Inclusion & Free Speech & Civility”: Oppression And Marginalization Through Diversity Rhetoric, Kamden Strunk, Hannah Carson Baggett, Ivan E. Watts

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

As higher education institutions increasingly roll out diversity and inclusion initiatives, they intend to signal particular commitments. In this manuscript, we employ critical literacy as a framework for understanding the text and subtext of moments on our campus related to diversity and inclusion offices and initiatives. We first present the text of two particular moments, including the actual text of signs, messages, and conversations, but also including as a text the actions and inactions of university administrators. For each moment, we first present the text, including the actual or physical text(s), the superficial meaning(s), and the sequence of ...


A Critical Literacy Approach To Student Affairs Education, Brian J. Reece, Ryan M. Rish Nov 2020

A Critical Literacy Approach To Student Affairs Education, Brian J. Reece, Ryan M. Rish

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

This article argues for the use of critical literacy as a critical pedagogy in student affairs practice. The authors describe how some currents of the student affairs literature have shifted toward a focus on student learning and critical approaches to student development and learning. Subsequently, they discuss the social turn in our understanding of literacy and a related move toward critical approaches to understanding literacy as a social practice. Finally, they present a synthesis of the literature, which results in considerations for approaching higher education student affairs contexts through a critical literacy framework, exposing gaps and areas for future theorizing ...


Using Critical Race Theory To Redefine The Standards Of Professional Practice For Chief Diversity Officers, Brandon C M Allen, Alberto J. Rodriguez, Levon T. Esters, Nov 2020

Using Critical Race Theory To Redefine The Standards Of Professional Practice For Chief Diversity Officers, Brandon C M Allen, Alberto J. Rodriguez, Levon T. Esters,

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

To meet the needs of the evolving student demographics that has seen a 300% increase in URM college going rates, higher education institutions began developing the Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) position to govern and lead their mission as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion. More than 60 colleges have created a CDO position over the last 20 yeas with many more heading in that direction. However, because CDOs are relatively novel in the higher education space, the leading authority of diversity officer research, the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE), developed a set of guidelines to ...


Promoting Access & Critical Literacy: Working Within, Beyond, And Against The Academy, Sydney Curtis, Dianey R. Leal Oct 2020

Promoting Access & Critical Literacy: Working Within, Beyond, And Against The Academy, Sydney Curtis, Dianey R. Leal

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

There is a common trope in academia that the purpose of research is to give a voice to the voiceless. However, as critical scholars, we recognize that this viewpoint perpetuates a deficit lens and ignores and/or minimizes the agency that individuals already hold. So when the 2019–2020 Editorial Board was deciding on a theme for the Journal’s next Special Issue, rather than thinking of any person as “voiceless,” we knew we wanted to instead, “pass the mic” to amplify voices and perspectives that are not always centered in academia. Promoting Access and Critical Literacy is a function ...


Disability As Diversity In Higher Education, Emily M. Burns Oct 2020

Disability As Diversity In Higher Education, Emily M. Burns

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

College students with disabilities experience many barriers to postsecondary education including disability documentation requirements, social exclusion, inaccessible course design, and ostracizing campus environments. Most postsecondary leaders regulate disabled students to disability services offices, worrying about adherence to disability laws. Contributors to Disability as Diversity in Higher Education: Policies and Practices to Enhance Student Success, edited by Kim & Aquino (2017), challenge higher education personnel to implement intentional strategies that would include disabled students in all aspects of campus life.


Angry White Men On Campus: Theoretical Perspectives And Recommended Responses, Kyle C. Ashlee, Pietro A. Sasso, Christina Witkowicki Oct 2020

Angry White Men On Campus: Theoretical Perspectives And Recommended Responses, Kyle C. Ashlee, Pietro A. Sasso, Christina Witkowicki

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

In this article, the authors explore a rise in violent protest among white college men, theoretical interpretations of this trend, and recommendations that student affairs educators can implement to address the harmful acts of white male on campus. By examining hegemonic masculinity, the theory of dispossession, anomic protest masculinity, and white men’s disengagement in college, student affairs professionals can begin to understand the larger contemporary trend of student activism among white college men. Moreover, evaluating common strategies for engaging college men, including behavior-only approaches, bad-dogging accountability practices, and white privilege pedagogy, educators can gain perspective on how current responses ...


Rethinking The Study Of College Student Suicide: Critical Suicidology And Higher Education, Lisa S. Kaler Oct 2020

Rethinking The Study Of College Student Suicide: Critical Suicidology And Higher Education, Lisa S. Kaler

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

This paper introduces Critical Suicidology to higher education, exploring how this perspective can help understand and prevent college student suicide. Critical Suicidology critiques the creation of truth and knowledge in the study of suicide and demonstrates that suicide has been socially constructed. Assumptions within extant literature limit our understanding of suicide and preclude critical examination into the role of higher education on suicidal thoughts among college students, particularly those from marginalized populations. This paper argues that higher education scholars’ contextual knowledge of the student experience can engender critical studies that explore college student suicide within the context of higher education ...

Education: School of Education Faculty Publications and Other Works

This article presents findings from a Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) study on the experiences of six undocumented college students at a community college in the Midwest United States. We focused on two main research questions: What are some of the key developmental experiences of undocumented youth? What is the impact of these experiences on the students’ identity and sense of belonging in educational spaces, especially as they transition to college? The findings illustrate the experiences of the six participant coresearchers (PCRs) as they navigated the messy, fragile, and shifting nature of belonging. A common thread in their narratives was ...

Higher Education: Path Or Barrier To Opportunity?, Amanda Jd Simpfenderfer Mar 2020

Higher Education: Path Or Barrier To Opportunity?, Amanda Jd Simpfenderfer

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

Higher education has long been viewed as the pathway to economic and social mobility within the United States and yet institutions have historically restricted access based on race, gender, and social class. This scholarly paper, explores, argues, and presents evidence to demonstrate how the impact of colonialism, neoliberalism, and cultural capital/wealth intersect and have served to mold higher education into a tool of oppression, by limiting access and attainment, to historically underserved and oppressed populations.

Does A Computer Science Graduation Requirement Contribute To Increased Enrollment In Advanced Computer Science Coursework?, Steven Mcgee, Randi Mcgee-Tekula, Jennifer Duck, Lucia Dettori, Ronald I. Greenberg, Andrew M. Rasmussen, Erica Wheeler, Adam Shelton

Computer Science: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Prior research has shown that students pursuing Exploring Computer Science (ECS) as their first elective course were more likely to pursue another computer science course in high school, as compared to students who took a traditional course as the first course. This study investigated whether the results are consistent when students are pursuing ECS to fulfill the Chicago Public Schools' graduation requirement. ECS is designed to foster deep engagement through equitable inquiry around computer science concepts. It is hypothesized that students who are fulfilling a graduation requirement will pursue additional computer science coursework at rates similar to students who were ...

This study compares the characteristics and professional development (PD) experiences between teachers who began teaching Exploring Computer Science before and after the enactment of a CS graduation requirement in the Chicago Public Schools. The post-requirement teachers were less likely to have a CS background, but their experience in the ECS PD and their level of confidence at the end of the PD were equivalent to the early adopters.


Computer Science Through Concurrent Enrollment: A Strategy To Broaden Participation, Renee Fall, Seth Freeman, Ronald I. Greenberg, Dan Kaiser, Nigamanth Sridhar Feb 2020

Computer Science Through Concurrent Enrollment: A Strategy To Broaden Participation, Renee Fall, Seth Freeman, Ronald I. Greenberg, Dan Kaiser, Nigamanth Sridhar

Computer Science: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Most U.S. states support college-readiness and access through dual enrollment, in which high school students enroll in college courses. Concurrent enrollment (CE) allows students to take college courses in their own high school, taught by high school teachers approved by the partner college. CE has positive effects on students' education, but rarely is CS available through CE. Unlike AP, CE provides college credit to students who are assessed throughout the course rather than by a single high-stakes exam/project. This panel will showcase four different types of post-secondary institutions' experiences offering CS-through-CE and discuss its potential as an entry ...

Think Like A Teacher: How Reflective Educators Use Multiple Data Sources To Inform Their Practice, Jana Grabarek Jan 2020

Think Like A Teacher: How Reflective Educators Use Multiple Data Sources To Inform Their Practice, Jana Grabarek

Dissertations

Teacher data use has become an increasingly central feature of American education. Messages from the public policy, research, philanthropy, and professional development arenas assert that collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data€”particularly number-based achievement data€”will increase student achievement. in this dissertation, a review of literature exploring the link between data use and achievement yielded mixed results. While increased achievement was slightly more likely when data use involved multiple types of data and/or data use strategies, its effectiveness was not consistently supported, and least apparent when tied to marginalized students. to better understand what effective data use might look like ...


Teacher Leadership: A Case Study In The Preparation Of Future Teacher Leaders, Abigail Hasebroock Jan 2020

Teacher Leadership: A Case Study In The Preparation Of Future Teacher Leaders, Abigail Hasebroock

Dissertations

Over the past century, Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade (PK-12) schools evolved into hierarchical learning organizations that centralized power, decision-making, and leadership at the top in the hands of a few predominantly male administrators. the teaching force, by contrast, became majority female. While teacher education programs formalized, the accountability movement that swept across the U.S. schooling system during the 1980s led to narrowed teacher educator programs and licensure requirements. Consequently, traditional teacher education programs in four-year universities focused more on theory and pedagogy but less on praxis and leadership in the name of producing highly-qualified teachers. Today, new pathways for ...

The Shadow-Beast: The Influence Of Critical Consciousness On Resilience Narratives Of Latinx/A/O College Students, Norma Lopez

Dissertations

The purpose of this LatCrit narrative study was to explore how Latinx/a/o students who are first-generation to college make meaning of their resilience in relation to the development of their critical consciousness. the research questions that guided this study were: How do first-generation to college Latinx/a/o students make meaning of their ability to overcome obstacles and persevere in the face of adversity; in other words, how have they constructed their resilience narrative? How does critical consciousness, or understanding their social identity within the context of social, political, and economic forms of oppression, influence their resilience narrative ...


The Impact Of Positive School Culture On School Success: A Principal's Self-Study Of Transformational Leadership, Sean Mcnichols Jan 2020

The Impact Of Positive School Culture On School Success: A Principal's Self-Study Of Transformational Leadership, Sean Mcnichols

Dissertations

The purpose of this self-study was to examine how I, as a school principal and transformational leader, was able to support the development of positive relationships that impacted school culture and sustained student achievement. Reculturing a school involves the examination of beliefs, expectations, and assumptions for the purpose of school change that can facilitate a collective sense of purpose (DuFour & Burnette, 2002: Fullan, 2005). to do this, I focused on social and emotional learning while incorporating opportunities for school staff, parents, community members and student's voices to be heard through group meetings and forums. the analysis of this study ...

The Extent Professional And Moral Authorities Are Evident In Federal Inclusive Education Policies, Lucille Marie Melchert

Dissertations

The EXTENT PROFESSIONAL and MORAL AUTHORITIES ARE EVIDENT in FEDERAL INCLUSIVE EDUCATIon POLICIES This study was conducted to investigate landmark federal inclusive policies in relation to leadership styles, specifically characteristics related to Sergiovanni's (1992) professional and moral leadership authorities. Research is markedly limited regarding what federal inclusive education policies say about school and district leadership. This enlightenment concerning the lack of guidance in the field of educational leadership practice, federal education policy, and inclusive learning methods is significant. Current literature supports the examination of federal education policies in relation to educational leadership. There is currently a gap in research ...
