The long-awaited second volume of Pascarella and Terenzini's 1991 award-winning review of the research on the impacts of college on students. The authors review their earlier findings and then synthesize what has been learned since 1990 about college's influences on students. The book also discusses the implications of the findings for research, practice, and public policy. This authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the literature on college impact is required reading for anyone interested in higher education practice, policy, and promise - faculty, administrators, researchers, policy analysts, and decision makers at every level.
