Take a critical look at the theory and recent empirical research specific to mentoring undergraduate students. This monograph: * Explains how mentoring has been defined and conceptualized by scholars to date, * Considers how recent mentoring scholarship has begun to distinguish mentoring from other developmental relationships, * Synthesizes recent empirical findings, * Describes prevalent types of formalized programs under which mentoring relationships are situated, and * Reviews existing and emerging theoretical frameworks. This monograph also identifies empirical and theoretical questions and presents research to better understand the role of mentoring in promoting social justice and equity. Presenting recommendations for developing, implementing and evaluating formal mentoring programs, it concludes with an integrated conceptual framework to explain best-practice conditions and characteristics for these programs. This is the first issue of the 43rd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

General education is widely touted as an enduring distinctive of higher education, but what do we actually mean by general education? Differing perspectives not only make it challenging to consider its significance, but also open it up to a wide range of determinations regarding its effectiveness. This volume aims to sharpen understanding of the complex picture of general education by: * describing how various conceptions of general education evolved historically, * identifying various functions expected of general education in the contemporary context, and * pointing out the educational practices that fulfill general education s aims in the current context. The conceptions of, and aspirations for, general education are consequential. This volume disentangles the divergent conceptions that hinder its renewal and considers the range of avenues for realizing its effectiveness. This is the second issue of the 42nd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

Social media is central to postsecondary education. It is how students engage with the campus community, and campus leaders and practitioners are interested in how an institution can employ social media to impact instruction, student services and institutional effectiveness in an increasingly competitive market. This volume presents the current research and scholarship on social media that provides a view of the higher education landscape in this new digital age and it demonstrates how social media influence behavior and campus culture. Drawing on a critical synthesis and analysis from recent research on this rapidly evolving phenomenon, this monograph examines: * some of the assumptions and presumptions around social media, * how social media is used and how it shapes the student experience and student development, and * best practices for enhancing curricular and co-curricular communities of practice. This is the 5th issue of the 42nd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

Francis Edward "Ab" Abernethy served as the Secretary-Editor of the Texas Folklore Society for over three decades, managing the organization's daily operations and helping it grow. He edited two dozen volumes of the PTFS series and wrote the three volumes of the Society's history. This publication of the Texas Folklore Society celebrates Ab Abernethy's years of leadership in collecting, preserving, and presenting the folklore of Texas and the Southwest. The prefaces to some of the more memorable edited volumes are included, along with articles he wrote on music, teaching, anecdotes about historical figures and events, and "cultural" examinations of the things we hold dear. In all, these pieces tell us what was important to Ab. In part, these topics are also what was-and still is- important to the Texas Folklore Society.

Critical race theory (CRT) was introduced in 1995 and for almost twenty years, the theory has been used as a tool to examine People of Color s experiences with racism in higher education. This monograph reviews the critical race literature with a focus on race and racism s continued role and presence in higher education, including: legal studies and history, methodology and student development theory, the use of storytelling and counterstories, and the types of and research on microaggressions. The goal of the editors is to illuminate CRT as a theoretical framework, analytical tool, and research methodology in higher education. As part of critical race theory, scholars and educators are called upon to extend their commitment to social justice and to the eradication of racism and other forms of oppression. This is the 3rd issue of the 41st volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.
