Synopses & Reviews
The New Majority and Higher Education is the first book to analyze and synthesize more than twenty years of theory and research on racial and ethnic minority students experiences and outcomes in higher education. Given the increasing representation of people of color across the nation and on college campuses, along with the significant racial and ethnic disparities in degree attainment, it is critical to understand how to maximize these students success and preparation for the workforce. Leading scholars Museus and Griffin provide insights into current levels of understanding about racial and ethnic minority student success and workforce preparation in higher education, outline future directions for research in these areas, and illuminate how existing theory and research, taken together, can and should inform current policy and practice in higher education. This important and timely text will constitute a comprehensive single resource to which scholars, students, and leaders can turn for holistic understanding of existing knowledge on college students of color so that they can maximize success and preparation.
