High School to College Transition Research Studies offers two uniquely designed sections that provide a mixture of quantitative and qualitative research findings surrounding a diverse group of college students. This ground-breaking book by Terence Hicks and Chance W. Lewis provides the reader with valuable findings on topics such as student/faculty interactions, academic/social integration, and college preparation.
The transition from high school to college is a critical time in students’ academic careers that too often determines their continuation in college. In response, Terence Hicks and Chance W. Lewis have assembled an impressive cadre of leading scholars who provide compelling insight into the student transition experience, explicate the dire need for faculty-student and counselor-student interactions, and overview new strategies and programs that serve as promising markers for innovation. This volume is a must read for researchers and scholars who desire to improve outcomes for first-year collegians.
