College Success: What It Means and How to Make It Happen
One might think that college success is a simple subject. Everyone wants it to happen. But whose success? Students? Faculty? College? Perhaps even the nation's since we all have a stake in the results. Within the book, 15 authors give fresh perspective on topics ranging from recent broad trends in college performance to student suggestions to improve college teaching. Topics include a case study on high school ambitions and college performance; a case made by four college presidents that "college success" should be defined differently for different institutions; and an assessment of how one person's formal education both helped and hindered her later career development.
