Omi, Michael – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2008
Like "outsiders"--such as the Irish and the Jewish--have been incorporated into the Americans' notions of who are whites, some scholars and policy makers believe that Asian-Americans are following such a trajectory of inclusion under an expanded definition of "whiteness." The sociologist George Yancey, in "Who Is White? Latinos, Asians, and the…

Supiano, Beckie – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012
College officials deny it, but many Asian-American high-school students feel they will be held to a higher standard. The idea that Asian-American applicants are held to a higher standard in college admissions has received a wave of attention lately. The U.S. Department of Education is now investigating whether Princeton University discriminates…

Schmidt, Peter – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2009
Largely because of their high aspirations for their children, many Chinese immigrants are acutely aware of the University of California's new undergraduate-admissions policy.

Saigo, Roy H. – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2008
Nearly 10 years ago, the author wrote an essay for "The Chronicle" on the underrepresentation of Asian-Americans in academic leadership, especially in institutions and disciplines that have a high percentage of students and faculty members of Asian or Pacific Island ancestry.

Schmidt, Peter – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2008
This article reports the results of a new study on the impact of bans on race-conscious admissions policies which seem to confirm what many critics of affirmative action have long suspected: It is Asian-Americans, rather than whites, who are most disadvantaged by elite universities' consideration of ethnicity and race. Left unanswered are the…

Magner, Denise K. – Chronicle of Higher Education, 1993
Activists say colleges have a tendency to view all Asian Americans as a "model minority" succeeding without need for affirmative action. Demographic diversity of Asian Americans raises complex questions for institutions, who are unable to provide for needs of refugees, recent immigrants, and native-born Americans in two dozen ethnic…

Monaghan, Peter – Chronicle of Higher Education, 1999
Many Asian-American studies programs have emerged on college campuses recently, due largely to high Asian-American enrollment and student pressure. The field originated in the 1960s, and has broadened to incorporate many ethnic groups. Courses may be either broad-based, comparing ethnic or immigrant groups, or narrowly focused on specific themes.…

Oppenheimer, Mark – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2008
For having achieved a mild cult status after doing the movie "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle," lead actors John Cho and Kal Penn deserve their fame, their million-dollar paychecks, and their groupies. Do they deserve Ivy League teaching jobs? This spring Penn (whose real name is Kalpen Modi) taught a large lecture class, "Images of Asian…

Keller, Josh; Hoover, Eric – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2009
The University of California has adopted changes to its undergraduate admissions policy that will enlarge its applicant pool and drop the requirement that students take the SAT Subject Tests.

Schmidt, Peter – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2007
After more than five decades of racial integration and four decades of affirmative action, most of the nation's colleges and universities have not come close to eliminating the performance gap that separates many black, Hispanic, and Native American students from their white and Asian-American counterparts. Although some colleges say they are…
