American ethnicity : the dynamics and consequences of discrimination by Adalberto Aguirre( Book )

28 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: This brief text provides an accessible introduction to the dynamics of racial and ethnic relations. After summarizing key concepts and theories, the authors develop a simple theoretical framework that guides the presentation of data on each of the prominent ethnic groups in America. As a result, the book examines each ethnic group from the same perspective, allowing students to compare the dynamics of discrimination against African Americans, Native Americans, Asian and Pacific Island Americans, white ethnic Americans, and Latinos
Chicanos in higher education : issues and dilemmas for the 21st century by Adalberto Aguirre( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph looks at Chicano participation in higher education to date and pressing issues for increased participation in the 21st century. An exploration of how Chicanos relate generally to the national education system cites low academic achievement which contributes to relative social and cultural isolation. Isolation coupled with educational tracking places the population at risk for negative educational and economic outcomes. Looking at Chicanos and higher education the monograph notes slow improvement in part due to small numbers of students pursuing postsecondary education. This section also recalls the history of Chicano participation beginning in the 1850s in California and including the recent construction of "El Plan de Santa Barbara." Examination of the context for participation notes federal government programs and legislation which have facilitated entry for Chicanos and also reinforced a subordinate status. A section on Chicano representation in higher education finds that faculty, though persons of extraordinary accomplishment, are marginalized in the academic community. Looking ahead the monograph argues that Chicanos must use educational attainment for social change and acquiring influence for participation in policy-making arenas. Contains over 300 references.

Women and minority faculty in the academic workplace : recruitment, retention, and academic culture by Adalberto Aguirre( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an attempt to address the need for substantive comparisons in the minority university faculty population, this monograph examines the relative differences in minority groups in the faculty population when the data permit comparisons. The report also examines research on the status of women faculty members. The discussion assembles a large volume of empirical research organized under the main thesis that academia for women and minority faculty is often experienced as a chilling and alienating environment. Women and minority faculty are expected to perform institutional roles that allow higher education institutions to pursue diversity on campus, but these roles are ignored in the faculty reward system, especially in the awarding of tenure. The chapters are: (1) "The Status of Women and Minority Faculty: Changing or Unchanging?"; (2) "The Academic Workplace"; (3) "The Academic Workplace for Women and Minority Faculty"; (4) "Issues Facing Women and Minority Faculty"; and (5) "Summary Observations and Suggestions." (Contains 314 references.) (Sld)
Diversity leadership in higher education by Adalberto Aguirre( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intergroup dialogue promotes student engagement across cultural and social divides on college campuses through a face-to-face, interactive, and facilitated learning experience that brings together twelve to eighteen students from two or more social identity groups over a sustained period of time. Students in intergroup dialogue explore commonalities and differences; examine the nature and impact of discrimination, power, and privilege; and find ways of working together toward greater inclusion, equality, and social justice. Intergroup dialogue is offered as a cocurricular activity on some campuses and as a course or part of a course on others. The practice of intergroup dialogue is considered a substantive and meaningful avenue for preparing college graduates with the knowledge, commitment, and skills essential for living and working in a diverse yet socially stratified society. The research evidence supports the promise of intergroup dialogues to meet its educational goals-consciousness raising, building relationships across differences and conflicts, and strengthening individual and collective capacities to promote social justice." "This volume outlines the theory, practice, and research on intergroup dialogue. It also offers educational resources to support the practice of intergroup dialogue. Addressing faculty, administrators, student affairs personnel, students, and practitioners, this volume is a useful resource for anyone implementing intergroup dialogues in higher education. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

A sociolinguistic survey of a bilingual community : implications for bilingual education by Adalberto Aguirre( Book )

7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sociolinguistic information is needed for proper implementation of bilingual education programs. The survey discussed here was designed to provide information on the sociolinguistic parameters in the bilingual community, identification of the transfer or maintenance status of Spanish, and the selection of a bilingual education program. A questionnaire related to general language use and language preference patterns was administered to educators and parents in a small, rural Colorado community, which had had a bilingual education program for four years. They were also asked to examine models of bilingual programs to determine the type of program they would prefer to their own. The results demonstrated that educators and parents differ in their sociolinguistic characteristics and in their selection of a bilingual education program model. These results challenge the assumptions that teaching/administrative staff in bilingual programs themselves reflect bilingual goals and orientations in their behavior, and that ethnicity rather than socio-economic or educational factors is a primary influence in language maintenance. The unintentional exclusion of children from the survey is seen as a flaw and reflective of the tendency to exclude those most affected by a policy from the policy-making process. (AMH)

In search of a paradigm for bilingual education by Adalberto Aguirre( Book )

5 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of a new paradigm depends upon the level of coherency and organization within its supporting community, and Thomas Kuhn's argument concerning the resistance to new paradigms and their power to change the existing order can be used in the context of bilingual education. Bilingual education programs have the potential to create a scientific revolution in the field of education, have drawn a widespread resistance from existing paradigms, but have failed to instigate any paradigmatic changes in current educational practice. An examination of the various types of bilingual education programs currently functioning in American public schools raises the following questions: (1) Can bilingual education programs be characterized to the extent and level of technical knowledge that make them operational? (2) What are the effects of technological characteristics on the bilingual classroom structure and its outcomes? (3) Is it possible to structure bilingual education programs into "ideal type" models? Bilingual education has failed to arise as a paradigmatic response to a unique set of beliefs and has not developed a model that would generate hypotheses relevant to its survival in a bureaucratic environment. Bilingual education must gain control of itself and direct its own action. (Author/ML)

Summer Research Opportunity Programs. Voices and Visions of Success in Pursuit of the Ph. D. Enhancing the Minority Presence in Graduate Education V by Adalberto Aguirre( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was done of Summer Research Opportunity Programs (SROPs) sponsored by graduate schools across the nation to encourage minority undergraduate students to pursue academic careers. Eight United States colleges and universities were selected for the study: Purdue University (Indiana), University of California at Los Angeles, Stanford University (California), Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Temple University (Pennsylvania), Cornell University (New York), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Howard University (District of Columbia). All have SROPs as well as graduate departments that have enrolled alumni of these programs. At each institution two SROP alumni were profiled (one a beginning doctoral student and another advanced candidate), along with at least one faculty member who had served as advocate and mentor to the students, and an administrator who managed the SROP. The report provides narrative summaries of each interview with a photograph of the individual and personal and academic data appearing at the beginning. An appendix is a directory of SROP programs across the nation. (JB)
