Rashné Rustom Jehangir


"This is a brilliant, engaging, and well-written book on first-generation, mostly low-income college students, which offers creative suggestions regarding how to reorganize the academy to include learning communities, partnerships between academic divisions and student services, multicultural competence training, and creative pedagogy to make the academy more welcoming and inclusive." - Joseph L. White, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of California, Irvine "Jehangir deftly weaves commentary about what it means to conceive of education as a public good. At the center of the book are students' voices, providing timely and compelling descriptions of effective pedagogical practice. Their questions - raised several years after their learning community experiences - point to needed improvement in colleges. Jehangir's conclusions provide clear approaches for campus teams to make their institutions work better for first generation, low-income students." - Emily Lardner, Co-Director of the Washington Center for Improving Undergraduate Education, The Evergreen State College "Perhaps the most helpful aspect of Jehangir's book is her call for changing the way we help students learn . . . Jehangir's model . . . may benefit a a large number of students who enter twenty-first century North American classrooms." - Teaching Theology and Religion
