Praise for the Second Edition of STUDENT DEVELOPMENT IN COLLEGE

"Student Development in College is a rich, comprehensive exploration of the major theoretical perspectives that inform development. The authors' attention to nuances and complexities results in a substantive history of theory development and a careful story about how various perspectives evolved yielding contemporary theorizing. The book is a masterful blend of theoretical lenses and their use in designing developmentally appropriate practice for diverse populations of contemporary college students. It is an excellent resource for all educators who work on college campuses."
—Marcia Baxter Magolda, Distinguished Professor, Educational Leadership, Miami University

"This is an invaluable work for anyone seeking an introduction to college student development theories or those seeking to update their existing knowledge. It offers a thorough and complex review of both the foundational theories and the newer—often more culturally relevant—theories and models."
—Raechele L. Pope, program coordinator, Higher Education Program, University at Buffalo

"The original book was a tremendous contribution to the field of higher education and especially student affairs. After more than ten years, this revision is a timely and focused enhancement to the literature that nurtures quality professionals to think differently about topics relevant to our field. Well done a second time around!"
—Gregory Roberts, executive director, ACPA—College Student Educators International
