Today, we are excited to release “Bringing Visibility to the Needs and Interests of Indigenous Students: Implications for Research, Policy, and Practice” by Nicole Alia Salis Reyes and Heather Shotton.
This report brings visibility to what is currently known about American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians in U.S. higher education. The authors make efforts in particular to highlight what we know that contributes to or hinders their postsecondary access and success. Some of these factors include Indigenous college access programs, culturally relevant curricular and co-curricular experiences, and opportunities to give back to their communities. In the end, the authors provide several recommendations for further research and for more equitable policy and practice.
