what really matters in college student engagement
What Really Matters in College Student Engagement

The research is unequivocal-

Impact of college is largely determined by individual effort.

Students are not passive recipients of institutional efforts to “educate” or “change” them.

Important to focus on ways in which an institution can shape its academic, interpersonal, and extracurricular offerings to encourage student engagement.
