About the authors

C. Casey Ozaki (she/her/hers) is Associate Professor and Chair for the Department of Education, Health, and Behavior Studies at the University of North Dakota, USA. Her research bisects both the student affairs and teaching and learning areas of the college campus, with a shared focus on diverse students, their outcomes, and factors that influence those outcomes. As part of this focus, she has explored the role of student affairs professionals at community colleges.

Laura Parson (she/her/hers) is Assistant Professor of Educational and Organizational Leadership at North Dakota State University, USA. Her research questions seek to understand how policy, discourses, practices, and procedures inform the experiences of minoritized groups in higher education, and how the institution coordinates those factors through translocal practices. She is a qualitative methodologist, with a focus on ethnographic and discourse methods of inquiry.

Reviews

"In times of crisis, it can be easy for educators to begin to feel that it’s nearly impossible to make much of a difference. But this need not be the case. We can be inclusive in ways that improve the lives of learners and lead them to seek to improve the lives of others in turn. This volume has a clear focus on how through teaching and learning theory and practice, educators can promote social justice and equity. This text will be an invaluable reader for educators who recognize not only the necessity of but also the possibility and hope for change."
Claire Major, Professor, Higher Education Administration, University of Alabama, USA
