From the Publisher"Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives encourages new critical thought and analysis among educators, campus personnel and researchers regarding the value of hip-hop culture in enhancing college students’ learning and development. Unveiled through an artistic approach to inquiry, a portrait is presented of how students who create hip-hop integrate its ideology, aesthetics and practices into their college lives."
—Journal of College Student Development
"Petchauer’s work not only validates the spaces created by students on all of our campuses, but should in fact challenge faculty, staff, and administrators to find new and creative ways to engage students. This is a fascinating study which should hopefully provide a more sophisticated understanding of how students make meaning on campus."
—From the foreword by Walter M. Kimbrough, Ph.D., President of Philander Smith College
"This book is a passionate, timely, and deep-rooted analysis of hip-hop culture’s value to higher education. Petchauer’s prescriptions for integrating hip-hop into pedagogical practice are practical, culturally astute, and ultimately revolutionary."
—Joseph Schloss, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Black and Latino Studies, Baruch College
"This book is an important intervention in contemporary debates on hip-hop and education. Petchauer shows us how campuses have been radically transformed through hip-hop in ways often invisible to educators and administrators alike, and he has begun a new and fruitful discussion for the field of hip-hop studies as well as education more broadly. This is a vital and necessary book."
