"Academic misconduct is a longstanding problem, one that unfortunately has not simply disappeared with the advent of the twenty-first century. Much has been written about the integrity of undergraduate academic work, but little has changed--higher education still responds to reports of student cheating by institutionalizing methods to prevent, police, and punish, and academic misconduct continues to exist in colleges and universities. This monograph considers the issue in the context of the complex forces that currently strain the teaching and learning environment. She proposes a new perspective that calls for campuses to shift from asking 'How do we stop students from cheating? to 'How do we ensure students are learning?' The alternative teaching and learning strategy outlined here positions student academic integrity at the center of a new perspective on teaching and learning, one that is gaining ground in contemporary educational institutions."
"Hudley and Gottfried's new book is on the cutting edge of this important research. The chapters in this book focus on both the cultures of schools, and how the cultures of schools are related to larger societal structures within the United States. The book contains an excellent balance of research examining both descriptive relationships among variables as well as novel interventions designed to enhance motivation. This book will be an extremely valuable resource both for researchers and for students of education and psychology." -- Eric M. Anderman, Professor, School of Educational Policy and Leadership, The Ohio State University
"At a time when so many studies of African American students focus on the factors of failure, Academically Gifted African American Male College Students fills a conspicuous void in the research literature on postsecondary education by focusing on success. Like no other work before it, this remarkable study goes deep inside the experiences of academically gifted African American men who successfully navigate their way through rigorous college-level programs.
