Siegel, Michael J. – About Campus, 2011
Over the past several decades, college-student retention has arguably been the most intensely studied issue in academe. Though the body of retention literature grows ever larger, no one model adequately explains the process by which college students make a decision to leave an institution or to persist to graduation.

Dewey, Jim – About Campus, 2011
This article describes what the author, a faculty member, learned from the student development professionals at his university, the people who plan student activities and run residence halls.

Porter, Melody C. – About Campus, 2011
Alternative breaks (ABs) often bring a smattering of images to mind: college students in matching T-shirts, cramped vans, well-used work gloves, physical labor, and, perhaps, way too much peanut butter. All of these images are at least in part accurate for the AB program at the College of William and Mary. Add to them a strong sense that sending…

In 2002, former US President George W. Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) into law, leading to a significant change in the way elementary and secondary teachers design curricula and instruct their students, as well as the ways in which students learn and view learning in and outside of the classroom.

Sriram, Rishi; Scales, T. Laine; Oster, Meghan – About Campus, 2011
Perhaps a decade ago, accreditation agencies might have been satisfied with a list of student learning outcomes and some evidence that students achieved them. More and more, accreditors request evidence of "improvement". It is not enough to merely demonstrate that what one is doing works reasonably well; one must also show that he or she…

Seymour, Daniel – About Campus, 2011
In this article, the author discusses how to make strategic planning a more valuable tool for higher education in today's tough times. Strategic planning is really the answer to five straightforward questions.

Hiraldo, Carlos – About Campus, 2011
As the increasing racial diversity of the United States continues to be reflected in colleges and universities across the country, academics who think and write about their teaching philosophy remain more comfortable arguing for a curriculum that deals with race and gender than for one that centers on class and social mobility. Some academics feel…

The world is changing in dramatic and complex ways. There can be little doubt that if the twentieth century was "The American Century," the twenty-first century has already become a Global Century, framed by new power dynamics, new economic realities, and new quests for self-determination and freedom across all parts of the globe.

Schreiner, Laurie A. – About Campus, 2010
The qualitative difference in the "success" of college students raises question of how educators envision student success. Although in "Student Success in College," George Kuh, Jillian Kinzie, John H. Schuh, Elizabeth J. Whitt define student success broadly as "satisfaction, persistence, and high levels of learning and personal development," the…
