Beyond the Asterisk: Understanding Native Students in Higher Education is a text that emerged from the lack of knowledge in student affairs about Native American college student experiences. Since its publication in 2013, Beyond the Asterisk has become a primer for Non-Native colleges and universities to become Native student-ready. Ten years later, in a follow-up edited book, New Scholarship and Frameworks for Understanding Native Students in Higher Education, many of the 2013 authors, plus new Indigenous scholars, explore the advances in the field of Indigenous higher education and new research since 2013. Join two of the editors as they address expanded topics from the book.
