This sweeping resource gathers together in one volume the diverse body of theory informing our understanding of students' intellectual, cognitive, social, moral, and identity development during the college years. It critically examines the recent body of theory that reflects the changes, complexity, and diversity of today's campuses with special emphasis on gender and cultural differences in student development.
