Overview

By 2012 total college enrollment is projected to exceed 15.8 million, and a new generation of students and their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors will be in the forefront of this enrollment boom. Now is the time for student affairs practitioners to consider new learning and service strategies, rethink student development theories, and modify educational environments. This volume provides a foundation for understanding the incoming generation of students and to offer suggestions on how to educate and serve them more effectively.

This best selling issue is the 106th volume of the Jossey-Bass higher education report New Directions for Student Services.
