Overview

Just as faculty and curriculum are critical concerns for any college or university, other components of the campus environment hold equal significance for student learning and satisfaction. While there have been many books about the effects of environments on people, there have been few that focus on the many complexities of campus settings and how they contribute to student success and the quality of learning experiences. Educating by Design fills the information gap by providing a comprehensive model for creating student-friAndly and learning-supportive campus environments.

Authors C. Carney Strange and James H. Banning are nationally recognized experts on campus environments. They draw from decades of research and experience to present an integrated framework for assessing and understanding academic environments. They describe the principles and concepts that define effective person-environment interactions and examine how these principles work through four different environmental components: physical, aggregate, organizational, and socially constructed. They also discuss the four conditions for successful learning: inclusion, safety, involvement, and community. Filled with engaging anecdotes and practical examples, this long-awaited volume helps academic administrators and student services professionals to plan effective programs and build supportive learning communities.
