It intends to provide valuable and fresh insights from research studies and examples of best practices from Europe and all over the world. The author is a proud sponsor of the SAGE Keith Roberts Teaching Innovations Award —enabling graduate students and early career faculty to attend the annual ASA pre-conference teaching and learning workshop..

Rather than answer those questions, this book begins with the premise that student development has been hampered as a body of theory by the lack of critical theory and power analyses in its genealogy. The aim of Rethinking College Student Development Theory is to remedy that oversight. The book is organized in four sections.

      In addition to over 50 journal publications and book chapters, D-L is an author or editor of four books, most recently, Black Collegians’ Experiences in U.S. Northern Private Colleges: A Narrative History, (Palgrave, ) and co-editor with Elisa Abes and Susan R. Jones of a forthcoming text, Rethinking College Student Development.
