Garibay, Juan Carlos; Herrera, Felisha A.; Johnston-Guerrero, Marc P.; Garcia, Gina A. – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Despite popular claims that the United States has reached a "post-racial" era--one in which race no longer matters for determining one's life chances--college students continue to have strong views toward whether or not racial discrimination is still a major problem in this country. Utilizing multilevel modeling on data merged from the…

Ferrare, Joseph J.; Miller, Julia M. – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Prior research points to a variety of factors that influence student persistence in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) degree programs. Little attention, however, has been given to how STEM faculty understand these processes and subsequently frame their role in supporting students. To address this gap, this article reports on…

Douglas, Daniel; Salzman, Hal – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Mathematics is an important and hotly contested aspect of U.S. postsecondary education. Its importance for academics and careers and the extent and impact of math achievement disparities are all subject of longstanding debate. Yet there is surprisingly little research into how much and what types of mathematics courses are taken by U.S.…

Witteveen, Dirk; Attewell, Paul – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Numerous studies have investigated the consequences of vertical transfer on students' higher education outcomes in comparison to "native 4-year students"--those who went straight from high school into a bachelor's program. However, the long-term labor market outcomes for vertical transfer students are understudied. Using…

Vican, Shawna; Friedman, Asia; Andreasen, Robin – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Higher education faces a conflict between the traditional logic of professionalism and an increasingly prominent corporate logic. Using interviews with 30 faculty at a single institution, we seek to understand the consequences of these competing logics. Across our interviews, faculty express a misalignment between their professional values and the…

In this article we examine the ways in which institutional stratification and academic labor segmentation contribute to shaping faculty collaborative activities. We draw on interviews from science and engineering faculty at two institutions in the United States to highlight how collaboration, as an essential form of academic labor, is shaped by…

Extant research neglects to examine how policymakers make decisions regarding funding allocations to higher education institutions. This case study analyzed the policy process surrounding the development of one model for funding higher education in Colorado. The study is anchored in a theory of policy design, which considers how groups targeted by…

Ngo, Federick J. – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Using linked high school and college records for a national sample of students, I document the first college math courses that students take and examine how they compare with high school coursework. Detailed 12th-grade math assessment data and variation in college math course-taking allow me to estimate the extent of redundant college math…

Marin, Patricia; Yun, John T.; Garces, Liliana M.; Horn, Catherine L. – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Legal challenges continue to play central roles in critical higher education policy discussions. There are, however, wide gaps in understanding between the legal and research communities about the rigor and value of social science in legal decision-making--gaps that need to be addressed to improve the use of research in law. This study focuses on…

McGuire, Keon M.; Sweet, Joseph D.; Bryant-Scott, Kenzalia; McTier, Terrence S.; Ikegwuonu, Emeka – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Though much has been written about the benefits that Black sororities and fraternities offer its members as well as broader communities within and beyond the ivory towers, comparatively fewer studies have addressed how these organizations interact with men's constructions and embodiments of masculinities. Moreover, even fewer studies examine the…

Holland, Megan M. – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Although college access has increased, first-generation college students are still less likely to enroll in postsecondary education, and when they do enroll, are more likely to attend less selective schools compared to their peers whose parents are college-educated. In order to understand how first-generation students end up where they do, we must…

Monaghan, David B. – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Though the diversification of pathways through higher education is widely recognized, little is known about longer-term patterns of undergraduate participation and attainment. I used sequence analysis to examine college-going across early and middle adulthood in nationally-representative data. Clustering of sequence data revealed four latent…

Bassett, Becca Spindel – Journal of Higher Education, 2020
Low-income, first-generation (LIFG) students complete college at disproportionately low rates. This qualitative study examines this gap from the perspective of university actors who directly support LIFG students in two student support programs at one public university. Drawing on in-depth interviews and observations, this study investigates how…
