This book was conceived in a vision that ensued quite vividly during the Integral Education Seminar in 2007. Igniting Brilliance: Integral Education for the 21st Century is an anthology comprising chapters by educators, ranging from elementary teachers to university professors, who exemplify the integral approach. The emerging field of integral education is a holistic, multidimensional approach with a basis in Ken Wilber's all-quadrant, all-level framework. This book offers a snapshot of the field through a series of light, nonacademic memoirs. It is designed to inspire teachers to personalize the lessons and methods for adopting an integral approach.

In order to face the challenges of attracting minority and disadvantaged students and improving college participation among them, it is important to understand the college-choice decision of these students. This issue examines the often neglected topic of college-choice decision of minority and disadvantaged students and suggests avenues to help promote access and improve participation. Authors of this issue examine the influence of family and high school variables as well as racial and ethnic differences on college-choice. Understanding these variables, differences as well as obstacles of students, including first-generation students, are integral factors for understanding college-choice and uncovering key elements to help strengthen enrollment management. This issue also provides an informative discussion of the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1998, an invaluable resource, especially for researchers focussing on national trends. By providing insightful information on college-choice among minority and disadvantaged students, this issue will assist in gathering and utilizing information on prospective students in order to develop a cohesive and successful enrollment management system. This is the 107th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Institutional Research.

A wide-ranging consideration of the emerging field of contemplative education. Contemplative approaches to higher education have been gaining in popularity and application across a wide range of disciplines. Spurring conferences, a growing body of literature, and several academic programs or centers, these approaches promise to contribute significantly to higher education in the years to come. This volume provides an overview of the current landscape of contemplative instruction, pedagogy, philosophy, and curriculum from the perspectives of leading researchers and scholar-practitioners. Contributors come from a variety of disciplines, including education, management and leadership studies, humanities, social sciences, the arts, and information science. Drawing on diverse contexts, the essays reveal the applicability of contemplative studies as a watershed field, capable of informing, enriching, and sustaining the many disciplines and instructional contexts that comprise higher education. Chapters discuss the theoretical aspects of the field; the details, experiences, and challenges of contemplative approaches; and the hopes and concerns for the future of this field.
