Based on a five-year longitudinal study in which students were interviewed annually from their first year in college to the year after graduation, this book shows how ways of knowing change over the course of college and how gender influences ways of reasoning. It provides both student affairs professionals and teaching faculty with valuable insights into improving practice in such areas as student organizations, internships, campus employment, instructional approaches, evaluation methods, and more.
