Publications in Development

The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition at the University of South Carolina publishes scholarly practice books and research monographs on a wide range of high-impact practices designed to support student learning, development, and success.

BOOK SERIES ON SPECIAL POPULATIONS
The National Resource Center is currently accepting proposals for book-length manuscripts examining the transition experiences of college student populations that have been historically underserved or given limited consideration in the design of higher education contexts. Each volume will explore the experiences of a specific population in depth and draw on the theoretical, research, and practice literature to critically examine some of the fundamental assumptions underlying student success initiatives in higher education with an eye toward reshaping campus culture, policies, and practices to support the learning and development of the population under study. Such populations may include, but are not limited to,

  • Students from a specific racial or ethnic group (i.e., African Americans, Asian American/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Hispanic/Latino)
  • Students with physical, learning, and/or intellectual disabilities
  • Emancipated foster care youth
  • Veterans
  • Adult learners
  • International students
  • Student athletes
  • First-generation college students
  • Commuter students

Proposals are accepted on an ongoing basis. Authors are encouraged to contact Tracy L. Skipper, Assistant Director for Publications, at (803) 777-6226 or via e-mail at tlskippe@mailbox.sc.edu prior to submission to determine topics already in development.
