Black Men in College provides vital information about how to effectively support, retain, and graduate Black male undergraduates. This edited collection centers on the notion that Black male collegians are not a homogenous group; rather, they are representative of rarely acknowledged differences that exist among them. This valuable text suggests that understanding these differences is critical to making true in-roads in serving Black men. Chapter contributors describe the diverse challenges Black men in HBCUs face and discuss how to support and retain high-achieving men, gay men, academically unprepared men, low-income men, men in STEM, American immigrants, millennials, collegiate fathers, those affiliated with Greek organizations, and athletes. Recommendations for policy and practice to encourage retention and persistence to degree completion are grounded in extant theory and research. This text is a must-read for all higher education faculty, researchers, and student affairs practitioners interested in addressing the contemporary college experiences of Black men in postsecondary institutions.

"Jennifer is passionate about helping students understand how God has uniquely created them. Her wisdom steers them into colleges and careers that "fit" who they are. For any educator who wants to help young people make an eternal impact in this world, this is your definitive tool." -Katie Brazelton, PhD, MDiv, founder of Life Purpose Coaching Centers International(R), and bestselling author of Pathway to Purpose Today, it is not uncommon to hear the following statements from students: - I'm scared about what the future holds. - I wish I could receive more guidance because I have to make some huge decisions. - I feel like I'm constantly under pressure. - I need help focusing; I have set goals for myself, but I don't follow through. - I don't know who I am. - I don't know how to keep my priorities straight. Students today are not only under great pressure to succeed, but they are confused as to who they are and what success in their lifetime should look like. My Soul Mission is a detailed, biblically based, step-by-step guide that will help direct students in purposeful activities to steer them towards discovering their unique make-up and distinct Soul Mission.
Improving student learning with the tools of neuroscience and mindfulness. How is expanding students’ strengths more effective than improving their weaknesses? Why is creating a school where staff and students feel safe necessary for learning? How can anchoring with simple mindfulness practices prevent classroom behavioral problems? There is more to a classroom than just a teacher and a group of students. All classroom interactions have “invisible” neurobiological, emotional, and social aspects—the emotional histories of students, the teacher’s own background and biography. In this book, Kirke Olson takes lessons from brain science, mindfulness, and positive psychology to help teachers understand the full range of their students’ school experiences. Using its classroom-ready resources, teachers, administrators, parents, and policy makers can make the invisible visible, turning human investment in their students into the best possible learning outcomes.
Today’s universities fail students, leaving them stranded in an alien world that differs markedly from the ivory tower institution that ostensibly molded them for the future. The Authentic University proposes to overcome the manifold shortcomings of the contemporary postsecondary school by offering an innovative education that corresponds to the realities of the modern era. This university blends three distinct concepts of student-centered education to provide students with a personalized learning experience that develops distinct skills and competencies required by today’s employers. Students can save time, money, and effort while learning the information and applications that they want and need. Contained within the covers of this groundbreaking book lies a thorough description of everything that educational stakeholders must know about the Authentic University, including supporting literature and practical models alongside strategies for planning and implementation. The world has passed the university by and will not wait for education to keep pace with its ever-evolving information and communication technology situated in an increasingly entrepreneurial economy. We, as educational stakeholders, must meet the challenge of change in an urgent way. The first step toward bringing the university into the modern era begins with this book; the manual for a radically new type of education termed the Authentic University.
Say Hello to Your Incoming Class—They're Not Millennials Anymore Generation Z is rapidly replacing Millennials on college campuses. Those born from 1995 through 2010 have different motivations, learning styles, characteristics, skill sets, and social concerns than previous generations. Unlike Millennials, Generation Z students grew up in a recession and are under no illusions about their prospects for employment after college. While skeptical about the cost and value of higher education, they are also entrepreneurial, innovative, and independent learners concerned with effecting social change. Understanding Generation Z's mindset and goals is paramount to supporting, developing, and educating them through higher education. Generation Z Goes to College showcases findings from an in-depth study of over 1,100 Generation Z college students from 15 vastly different U.S. higher education institutions as well as additional studies from youth, market, and education research related to this generation. Authors Corey Seemiller and Meghan Grace provide interpretations, implications, and recommendations for program, process, and curriculum changes that will maximize the educational impact on Generation Z students. Generation Z Goes to College is the first book on how this up-and-coming generation will change higher education.
