Two pieces on Community College Education by Kelly Nielsen Published

In April grad student Kelly Nielsen had a chapter titled, “Beyond ‘Warming Up’ and ‘Cooling Out’: The Effects of Community College on a Diverse Group of Disadvantaged Young Women” published in a Routledge volume called Inequality, Power and School Success Case Studies on Racial Disparity and Opportunity in Education, edited by Gilberto Conchas and Michael Gottfried. Info on the book can be found at

Kelly has recently learned that a paper of his that was conditionally accepted in the first round of reviews has been accepted for publication in the journal Sociology of Education. The paper, titled, “’Fake It ‘Til You Make It’: Why Community College Students’ Aspirations ‘Hold Steady’” will be published in the October issue.

Both of these pieces are from his dissertation research. Congratulations Kelly!
