Working with Asian American college students
Leading off this volume, three undergraduate Asian American students share their experiences in college. In subsequent chapters, authors highlight the diversity of Asian American college students, analyze the "model minority" myth and the stereotype of the "perfidious foreigner," and point out the need to consider the racial identity and racial consciousness of Asian American students. Various authors propose a model of Asian American student development, address issues of Asian Americans who are at educational risk, discuss the importance of integration and collaboration between student affairs and Asian American studies programs, and offer strategies for developing socially conscious Asian American student leaders. Two authors who wrote about Asian American college students in 1987 reflect on the preceding chapters and provide suggestions for more effective work with Asian American students. With an extensive list of resources, ranging from associations and media to policy reports and landmark scholarly works, this volume is a valuable guide to student services practitioners and researchers alike.
This is the 97th volume in the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions For Student Services.
