Contents Introduction -- Historical overview of the model minority concept -- Asian Americans and the educational pipleine: tenuous citizenship -- Affirmative action and Asian American admissions -- Influential factors in the Asian American and Pacific Islander college student experience -- Conclusions and recommendations.
Abstract The Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) population continues to obfuscate the discourse on diversity and higher education institutions. The historical and contemporary experience of AAPIs in higher education clearly indicate that their presence has influenced and reinforced the importance of diversity in educational environments. To contextualize AAPIs' participation in postsecondary education, this monograph provides a historical overview of the "model minority" stereotype, the affirmative action debate and AAPIs, their involvement in the education pipeline, and a discussion of their experiences in college. Implications for future research, practice, and policy are further discussed. Educators, administrators, faculty, policy makers, and researchers who are concerned with diversity issues and the AAPI population will find this monograph a vaulable resource. -- From back cover.
