Critical Mentoring Practices to Support Diverse Students in Higher Education: Chicana/Latina Faculty Perspectives
Figueroa, Julie López; Rodriguez, Gloria M.
New Directions for Higher Education, n171 p23-32 Fall 2015
This chapter outlines critical practices that emerged from utilizing social justice frameworks to mentor first-generation, underrepresented minority students at the undergraduate to doctoral levels. The mentoring strategies include helping students to reframe instances when faculty and peers unconsciously conflate academic rigor with color-blind scholarship.
