"Kuh and his colleagues thoroughly describe the conditions for student success in college and how institutions can create those conditions. Far more than just a rich collection of 'what works,' this groundbreaking book provides a set of principles to guide administrators, faculty members, and policymakers in creating a culture and conditions that promote student success on any campus."
—Ernest T. Pascarella, Mary Louise Petersen Professor of Higher Education, University of Iowa, and Patrick T. Terenzini, distinguished professor, The Pennsylvania State University

"One of the most important and timely books ever written about what makes an engaged—and successful—student in today's colleges and universities. This book will undoubtedly join the ranks of groundbreaking prior works by Tinto, Astin, and Pascarella and Terenzini as an essential guide for higher education leaders, policymakers, and practitioners."
—Jamie P. Merisotis, president, Institute for Higher Education Policy, Washington, D.C.

"Kuh and his colleagues have turned a probing spotlight on the 'how' of pervasive educational change. Student Success in College should become a basic text for everyone concerned with the quality of undergraduate learning in the college years."
—Carol Geary Schneider, president, Association of American Colleges and Universities

"An invaluable work for campus retreats, self studies, assessment work, and any critical examination of your institution's approach to the undergraduate experience."
—John N. Gardner, executive director, Policy Center on the First Year of College, Brevard College

"A model for how qualitative research ought to be done."
—Peter T. Ewell, vice president, National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS)

"This very important work provides a roadmap for documenting effective educational practice and integrates real examples of how to foster high levels of learning, personal growth, and satisfaction for students while recognizing the importance of diversity."
—Alexander Gonzalez, president, California State University, Sacramento
