Files

Description

This important book introduces Arnett’s emerging adulthood theory to scholars and practitioners in higher education and student affairs, illuminating how recent social, cultural, and economic changes have altered the pathway to adulthood. Chapters in this edited collection explore how this theory fits alongside current student development theory, the implications for how college students learn and develop, and how emerging adulthood theory is uniquely suited to address challenges facing higher education today. Emerging Adulthood and Higher Education provides important recommendations for administrators, counselors, and student affairs personnel to provide effective programs and services to facilitate their emerging adults’ journeys through this formative stage of life. -- p.
