Geographies of Campus Inequality: Mapping the Diverse Experiences of First-Generation Students Hardcover - 2020

by Janel E. Benson; Elizabeth M. Lee


From the publisher

In efforts to improve equity, selective college campuses are increasingly focused on recruiting and retaining first-generation students-those whose parents have not graduated from college. In Geographies of Campus Inequality, sociologists Benson and Lee argue that these approaches may fall short if they fail to consider the complex ways first-generation status intersects with race, ethnicity, and gender. Drawing on interview and survey data from selective campuses, the authors show that first-generation students do not share a universal experience. Rather, first-generation students occupy one of four disparate geographies on campus within which they negotiate academic responsibilities, build relationships, engage in campus life, and develop post-college aspirations. Importantly, the authors demonstrate how geographies are shaped by organizational practices and campus constructions of class, race, and gender. Geographies of Campus Inequality expands the understanding of first-generation students' campus lives and opportunities for mobility by showing there is more than one way to be first-generation.

About the author


Janel E. Benson is Associate Professor of Sociology at Colgate University. Her research investigates sources of risk and resiliency in the transition from early adolescence to young adulthood to understand how contexts of development in early life shape identity, health, and social mobility. As a first-generation student, she is dedicated to mentoring other students who are first in their families to attend college through the A Better Chance program in Fayetteville-Manlius. Elizabeth M. Lee is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Saint Joseph's University. Her research examines class inequality, primarily within higher education settings. Much of her research focuses on how low-income, first-generation, and/or working-class (LIFGWC) college students at selective campuses manage class inequality among their peers through day to day interactions and relationships. Other work focuses on faculty members from LIFGWC backgrounds and on how students interact with their campus structures.

Description:
Hardback. New. Uncovering the complex ways that first-generation students sort themselves and are sorted into very different college worlds, Benson and Lee show that these experiences are deeply shaped by organizational practices and vary by class, race, and gender with both immediate and long-term implications for climbing the socioeconomic ladder.
