Refining and building on the concept in a sophisticated and multidisciplinary way, this book uses a funds of knowledge approach and connects it to other key conceptual frameworks in education to examine issues related to the access and transition to college, college persistence and success, and pedagogies in higher education. Research on funds of knowledge has become a standard reference to signal a sociocultural orientation in education that seeks to build strategically on the experiences, resources, and knowledge of families and children, especially those from low-income communities of color. Challenging existing deficit thinking in the field, the contribution of this unique and timely book is to apply this concept to and map future work on funds of knowledge in higher education.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"To my knowledge this is the first book that addresses exclusively higher education in a variety of social and cultural contexts.... And there is more. The book, edited ably by Rios-Aguilar and Kiyama, also represents a challenge to the utility of the original funds of knowledge approach...and the need to adapt or supplement its core ideas and methods to a variety of circumstances of study. Congratulations to the editors and authors on the path-breaking volume they have prepared. It is bold work they have undertaken with the goal of helping others access resources in a variety of circumstances and succeed in their advanced studies."

From the Foreword by Luis Moll, University of Arizona, USA
