NASPA Statement About Racial Violence

"Over the last three months, we have seen both the best and worst of humanity. Campuses and communities have demonstrated extraordinary care for one another. However, the pandemic brought xenophobia to the forefront of our society, and we continue to see racism and acts of violence directed at people of color. These blatant forms of racism, implicit bias, and racialized violence have a taxing effect on our staff of color and minoritized students. Bearing witness to these public events has a significant effect on how safe our colleagues and students feel in their own communities, and they reinforce the vital need for student affairs educators to understand and acknowledge the effects of privilege and oppression."

Assumptions About Working-Class Students and Job Search Services - Socioeconomic and Class Issues in Higher Education Post

In our latest blog, Career Coach Julie Maahs shares some assumptions about working-class students and job search services, and how she is working to overcome these assumptions in practice. #CSAM19 Read the full post here:

https://www.naspa.org/blog/assumptions-about-working-class-students-and-job-search-services

Working class students attending four-year colleges have reason to believe few people support their job search process. Perhaps their families encouraged them to pitch in at home instead of attending a career event (Barratt, 2011). Or maybe they attended a workshop and the presenter assumed they alr...

ATTN Student Affairs Educators! I am seeking participants for a study on experiences of social class and classism in higher education. Participants should self-defining as: (1) having a poor or working class background and (2) a current administrator at a two-year or four-year, public college or university in the United States. The purpose of this study is to explore and describe how and in what ways the phenomena of social class identity and classism show up in higher education and influence higher education experiences. Participants will be asked to participate in one interview and respond to guided reflection prompts. Email me ([email protected]) for additional information or with your interest in participating, or complete the online participant interest form: https://forms.gle/U7TLTXFYYXwALi5S7.

Dr. Georgianna Martin (University of Georgia) and I are under contract with Stylus Publishing to create a new edited book tentatively titled: Social Class Supports: Examples of Programs and Practices to Serve Poor and Working Class Students in Higher Education through Stylus Publishing. This book aims to highlight support efforts designed to engage and enhance the college experiences for poor and working class students in higher education. The text explores social class supports enacted by a variety of higher education constituents and offers practical, applied ideas for college educators, professionals, and administrators to engage their poor and working class student populations in meaningful and additive ways. In Social Class Supports, we seek to profile a variety of good practices in serving working class students in the field of higher education. We hope to include chapters on: (1) peer to peer supports (2) student affairs initiatives (3) higher education institution-wide programs (4) external partnerships (e.g., nonprofits, think tanks, national associations) This approach offers a unique opportunity to explore serving poor and working class students holistically. Ideally, we would like the person(s) who created, facilitate, and/or oversee the program to write the content. We welcome chapter proposals that address social class specifically and/or speak to supports at the intersection of social class and other dimensions of identity (e.g., race, ethnicity, ability, immigration, former foster youth) as we know sometimes supports are designed to serve students with multiple underserved identities. The detailed call for chapter proposals is attached, the deadline for proposals is August 1, and we are happy to answer any questions folks might have.
