Description

Praise for The Gender Gap in College

"Linda Sax has produced an encyclopedic volume comparing women's and men's development during the undergraduate years. We believe it is destined to become a classic in the higher education literature."
—From the Foreword by Alexander W. Astin and Helen S. Astin

"Using findings from an important national data set, Linda Sax has skillfully crafted a definitive work about the gender gap in college. It is a major scholarly achievement that will be influential for many years to come."
—Ernest Pascarella, Petersen Professor of Higher Education, University of Iowa

"Linda Sax has produced a meticulously researched, carefully documented analysis that identifies many ways that college impacts men and women differently. This book will be an invaluable resource to researchers and practitioners seeking to better understand and serve traditional-age students at four-year colleges and universities."
—Jacqueline E. King, assistant vice president, Center for Policy Analysis, American Council on Education
