Using Culturally Sensitive Frameworks to Study Asian American Leaders in Higher Education
Neilson, Patricia A.; Suyemoto, Karen L.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n142 p83-93 Sum 2009
In this article, the authors offer a brief discussion of the challenges posed by traditional approaches and the need for race- and culture-specific methods in the study of Asian American administrators. The authors discuss a research project, conducted by the first author, that focused on exploring the experiences of Asian American senior administrators in higher education in order to illustrate the incorporation of a constructivist racially and culturally specific analytical approach to researching the trajectories of higher education administrators. The authors also discuss the implications for future research on Asian Americans in higher education.
