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.
