How College Works
by Daniel Chambliss and Christopher Takacs
Limited resources of colleges and students need not diminish the undergraduate experience. The authors follow a cluster of nearly one hundred students over the span of eight years, and discover the surprisingly decisive role that personal relationships play in determining a student’s collegiate success. This book provides faculty a set of small, inexpensive interventions that yield substantial improvements in educational outcomes.
