Kuh, chancellor's professor and director, Center for Postsecondary Research, Indiana University
“In extending their landmark synthesis, Pascarella and Terenzini have reassuringly confirmed their original conclusions about college impact. But they also reveal how much broader and richer this literature has become through the addition of topics that range from diversity, through community colleges, to new theories of human development. Their work remains definitive.”Peter Ewell, senior associate, National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS)
