Faculty reflections:

Three KU faculty members, along with two professors from Washington State University and Florida State University, have written a book about civil rights and how the movement affected student life on college campuses.
Reflecting Back, Looking Forward: Civil Rights and Student Affairs is a collection of 18 first-person narratives that tell the story of the struggle on campuses during the civil rights era. Lisa Wolf-Wendel, associate professor of teaching and leadership; Susan Twombly, professor of teaching and leadership; Kathryn Nemeth Tuttle, associate vice provost for student success; Kelly Ward, associate professor of higher education at WSU; and Joy L. Gaston-Gayles, assistant professor in the higher education program at FSU, collected the accounts from student affairs administrators who served during the civil rights era.
David Ambler, former vice chancellor for student affairs, and Emily Taylor, former dean of women, both were interviewed for the book.
