Student Engagement in Higher Educationfills a longstanding void in higher education and student affairs literature. The editors and chapter authors show how diverse populations of students experience college differently and encounter group-specific barriers to success. Informed by relevant theories, each chapter focuses on a different population for whom research confirms that engagement and connectivity to the college experience are problematic, including: low-income students, racial/ethnic minorities, students with disabilities, LGBT students, and religious minority students. The second edition has been fully revised and updated to include new material on Muslim students, online and distance learning environments, and for-profit educational institutions. The forward-thinking, practical ideas offered throughout the book are based work experience in various capacities at two-year and four-year institutions of higher education. Current and future faculty, administrators, and student affairs staff will undoubtedly find this book complete with fresh strategies to reverse problematic engagement trends among a wide range of college student populations.
