Who has access to higher education today? At what financial and

personal cost? Based on what conditions and criteria? How do students

describe and interpret their experiences? And how can institutions

facilitate and constrain successful participation and completion?

These research studies extend current understandings of what it is

to be a student in higher education by embracing the dynamic

relationship between students as agents and institutions as living

structures which impact on their lives. Focusing on the diverse

experiences of today's non-traditional and traditional students,

researchers explore how and why institutional rhetoric of inclusion,

engagement, gender, and access may or may not be reflected in the

reality of students' experiences. Student Affairs moves

from theory to application by suggesting realistic strategies for

addressing the challenges surrounding the interrelation of students and


Each essay analyzes issues of access and participation in programs

ranging from community college developmental studies to graduate

studies. As a whole, this collection is a testament to how much

institutional change has occurred in the social organization of

postsecondary education, and how much more change is required to meet

the challenge of equitable access and inclusion.

Students and scholars of higher education, educational policymakers,

and current secondary and undergraduate students and their parents will

find this book essential reading. The results, implications, and

recommendations offered in each chapter will be readily transferable

throughout North America and beyond.
