"This timely volume rightly charges colleges and universities with responsibility for cultivating belonging among the increasingly diverse students they admit and offers much needed insight and direction related to systemic approaches that foster academic belonging. Every student encounters faculty while in college and thus faculty, with the right tools and approach, can have a major positive influence over students’ sense of belonging—this solutions-oriented volume provides instructive guidance and novel ideas for how faculty can do that. On-going challenges to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts underscores the importance of this volume in advancing higher education’s duty to ensure diverse students’ sense of belonging and success in college." Joseph Kitchen, Ph.D., Associate Research Professor, University of Southern California"Academic Belonging in Higher Education is a must-read for anyone who cares about student success in college. This book draws from an array of real-world efforts in various college contexts and provides practical advice and guidance on centering student belonging through intentional institutional-level actions. The authors and editors have offered an informative resource for anyone interested in creating more inclusive and equitable learning environments at colleges and universities."Michael Steven Williams, Ph.D., University of Missouri
