da Cruz, Cynthia Gordon – Review of Higher Education, 2018
Community-engaged scholarship (CES) is frequently recommended as a postsecondary practice for producing knowledge to address real-world issues and support the public good.

Zilvinskis, John; Louis Rocconi – Review of Higher Education, 2018
College rankings dominate the conversation regarding quality in postsecondary education. However, the criteria used to rank institutions often have nothing to do with the quality of education students receive.

Gonzales, Leslie D.; Ayers, David F. – Review of Higher Education, 2018
Little empirical research has systematically focused on, or interrogated, the labor expectations set forth for community college faculty. Thus, in this paper, we present a theoretical argument, which we formed by (re) reading several community college focused studies through various theoretical lenses. Ultimately, we merged two…

Cheslock, John J.; Hughes, Rodney P.; Cardelle, Rachel Frick; Heller, Donald E. – Review of Higher Education, 2018
When measuring institutional aid awards that address financial need, some researchers count all awards distributed based upon need-based criteria while other researchers count any awards that meet need. The sole use of either measure will omit key information, so we present two new measures--intentional and incidental need-meeting aid--that can be…

Yu, Hongwei; Glanzer, Perry L.; Johnson, Byron R.; Sriram, Rishi; Moore, Brandon – Review of Higher Education, 2018

In this study, we used structural equation modeling (SEM) to test a conceptual model of five factors using data from a relatively large sample of 2,503 college students. The results…
