Ng, Grace – Christian Higher Education, 2019
Asian Americans are the fastest-growing population of any minority group in the United States (Lopez, Ruiz, & Patten, 2017).

Park, Eujin – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2020
Drawing upon an ethnography of Korean American families in the Chicago suburbs, this article examines how Asian immigrant parents' engagement is shaped by race, ethnicity, class, and the suburban context.

Park, Julie J.; Liu, Amy – Journal of Higher Education, 2014
We use the Critical Race Theory frameworks of interest convergence and divergence to critique the anti-affirmative action movement's co-option of Asian Americans.

The current study attempted to explore this paradox from an attributional perspective. Academic achievement, self-esteem and attributions for academic failures (i.e., low ability and low effort) were…

Samura, Michelle – Journal of College Student Development, 2016
The importance of "belonging" for college students has been well documented.
