Synopsis

What impact does a college education have on students' careers and personal lives after they graduate? Do they consider themselves well prepared for the demands and ambiguities of contemporary society? What can we learn from their stories to improve the college learning experience? This groundbreaking book extends Marcia Baxter Magolda's renowned longitudinal study and follows her participants' lives from their graduation to their early thirties. We follow these students' journeys to an internally-authored sense of identity and how they make meaning of their lives. From this, the author proposes a new framework for higher education to better foster students' crucial journeys of transformation - through the shaping of curriculum and co-curriculum, advising, leadership opportunities, campus work settings, collaboration, diversity and community building.

Marcia Baxter Magolda is Professor of Educational Leadership at Miami University, Ohio; a two-time winner of American College Personnel Association awards for outstanding research; and has served on the editorial boards of About Campus, the Journal of College Student Development, The Review of Higher Education, and the American Educational Research Journal.
