Emerging Scholars: The Class of 2010
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v26 n24 p9-21 Jan 2010
Every year, the Emerging Scholars edition features a diverse group of rising researchers, thinkers and leaders in various fields. Their credentials and accomplishments distinguish them, but it's the level of social consciousness among the members of this year's class that makes them truly excellent. Whether it's lending a hand to society's struggling Black men or training lawyers in Native American law, these scholars use their work to build upon the cornerstones of societal change. Their research represents the fruit of decades of diversity advocacy that has expanded the depth and breadth of knowledge in higher education. These scholars use their specializations to intercede on behalf of the nation's most vulnerable communities. As academicians, these scholars are stretching the limits of research, inquiry, technology and public policy to include all peoples while remaining faithful to unraveling the injustices of the society. This article introduces 12 emerging scholars for the class of 2010 and presents vignettes that applaud the work of these scholars. These scholars include: (1) Brendesha Tynes; (2) Shedra Amy Snipes; (3) Yaohang Li; (4) Luis Urrieta Jr.; (5) David Treuer; (6) Michael Dorsey; (7) Angelique EagleWoman; (8) Madhavi Sunder; (9) Erika Tatiana Camacho; (10) Gonzalo E. Torres; (11) Said Sewell III; and (12) Stephanie Y. Evans.
