While formal early career mentoring is considered significant for faculty success, few universities have instituted programmatic mid-career mentoring. We review the reasons mid-career mentoring is important especially for under-represented (URM) faculty and consider the ways the entrenched model of one-on-one mentoring can fail URM faculty. We…

Jach, Elizabeth A.; Carvajal, Cynthia N. – New Directions for Higher Education, 2023
Despite the lack of comprehensive federal legislation for undocumented students, activists catalyzed the passage of the New York State Dream Act in 2019.

Hall, Kayon A. – New Directions for Higher Education, 2023
Using Sharpe's (2016) wake work theory, this paper highlights how one Black undocumented student used a study abroad experience to negotiate his dis/comfort and take up ontological space a liminal space. I argue that choosing to study abroad while risking uncertain access back in the United States is wake work. Escaping the wake, albeit short, was…

We conceptualize "kuwentuhan" as a methodological disruption to Western constructs of research. The purpose of this article is two-fold: first, to conceptualize and explicitly name "kwentuhan" as a research method and two, to reclaim Filipino epistemology and ontology through language. We orient "kuwentuhan" within…

The scholarship concerning undocumented immigrant students continues to overlook the lives of Black undocumented immigrant (undocuBlack) students.

Chelsea E. Noble – New Directions for Higher Education, 2023
In this chapter, I introduce the critical campus ecology model (CCEM) to account for systems of oppression in an individual's ecosystem. Drawing insights from queer geographies and critical whiteness studies, I add "oppressive systems" as the fifth contextual system to the Process-Person-Context-Time model. Forces in the oppressive…
