About this book

This edited volume sheds light on the lived experiences of underrepresented scholars as they transitioned into their professional roles. Bringing together the stories of doctoral students, practicing scholars, and preeminent scholars in the field of education, the book focuses on the development of voice and scholarship within underrepresented populations in colleges of education and the intersectionality of mentoring. Throughout the book, authors highlight the impact that sources of support and development, such as the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE), had on doctoral degree completion and post degree attainment professional endeavors. Overall, the collection shares and contextualizes experiences and implications of support regarding career advancement related to diversifying higher education faculty and administration.

Reviews

“While the doors of higher education continue to stay open, it does not mean that everyone who passes through that door is equally welcomed and supported in their academic work. Written by deans, faculty, newly-minted PhDs and EdDs, and doctoral students, From Student to Scholar is a must-read for all of us in the academy who want to ensure the growth and success of our colleagues of color.”
Lynn M. Gangone, President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education

“This book is necessary for higher education. The writers fully understand and emphasize the necessity to encourage others in their own paths in faculty roles and administrative roles, and the new era of higher education is underscored more than ever today.”
Allyson Leggett Watson, Dean, College of Education, Florida A&M University, USA

 “This rich, courageous anthology of lived experiences challenges the higher education community to cast new ideals for the conditions that optimize achievement in the professoriate and administration for persons from underrepresented groups.”
Falecia D. Williams, Campus President – West and Downtown Campuses, Valencia College, USA
