Editorial Reviews

Review

"Student Success in College merits serious attention by both the communities of practice and scholarship in Higher Education." (Journal of Higher Education, Mar-April/2008)

Review

"Kuh and his colleagues thoroughly describe the conditions for student success in college and how institutions can create those conditions. Far more than just a rich collection of ‘what works,’ this groundbreaking book provides a set of principles to guide administrators, faculty members, and policymakers in creating a culture and conditions that promote student success on any campus."
--Ernest T. Pascarella, Mary Louise Petersen Professor of Higher Education, University of Iowa, and Patrick T. Terenzini, distinguished professor, The Pennsylvania State University

"One of the most important and timely books ever written about what makes an engaged--and successful--student in today's colleges and universities. This book will undoubtedly join the ranks of groundbreaking prior works by Tinto, Astin, and Pascarella and Terenzini as an essential guide for higher education leaders, policymakers, and practitioners."
--Jamie P. Merisotis, president, Institute for Higher Education Policy, Washington, D.C.

"Kuh and his colleagues have turned a probing spotlight on the ‘how’ of pervasive educational change. Student Success in College should become a basic text for everyone concerned with the quality of undergraduate learning in the college years."
--Carol Geary Schneider, president, Association of American Colleges and Universities

"An invaluable work for campus retreats, self studies, assessment work, and any critical examination of your institution’s approach to the undergraduate experience."
--John N. Gardner, executive director, Policy Center on the First Year of College

"A model for how qualitative research ought to be done."
--Peter T. Ewell, vice president, National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS)

"This very important work provides a roadmap for documenting effective educational practice and integrates real examples of how to foster high levels of learning, personal growth, and satisfaction for students while recognizing the importance of diversity."
--Alexander Gonzalez, president, California State University, Sacramento

This is an incredible text. Although very idealistic, this text provides many ideas for Student Affairs professionals looking to make a difference on their campuses. Not only are 'big ideas' presented, but also the specifics on how to implement those ideas. This read is for optimistic professionals and 'movers and shakers'. Institutions trying to make changes on their campus should consult this text.

In depth explaination of DEEP project schools. The book is a little outdated as I think two of the schools referred to in the book have closed down. Overall, good way of adopting good teaching pedagogies.

The one thing I would ask the author is why the title says "in colleges". I can only think that it is because that is where the research was conducted. However, the principles outlined in this book apply to education anywhere! It is clearly set out with examples and case studies. There are comments from students about the learning they experienced. Although some of the language is quite academic, I recommend this book for anyone involved in education or training that wants to improve their practices - and isn't that all of us?

The information in the book is great. However, one has to be very careful when ordering to get the latest editions with all the up dates.
