Has the traditional notion of college—as a physical place, where campus life is an integral part of the college experience—become irrelevant or impractical? This volume of New Directions for Higher Education explores how administration, student affairs, and faculty work can work together to redefine the collegiate ideal, incorporating the developmental needs of a diverse student body and the changes in higher education's delivery and purpose. The authors discuss how faculty incentives can be reshaped to recognize their contributions to student development; how student affairs' programs and services can better serve non-traditional students; and how modified curricular structures, such as service learning and learning communities, can benefit a diverse student body.
