"A virtual 'how to' manual for designing, implementing, and assessing a combination of two powerful high-impact practices--first-year seminars and learning communities. Recognizing that context matters, Chism Schimdt and Graziano offer us the bonus of case studies, preserving the unique voice and character of both the writers and the programs surveyed."--Jack Mino, Coordinator, Learning Community Program, Holyoke Community College

"Investigating Sophomore Student Success combines institutional-level data with student reports to present the first-ever national picture of the impact college initiatives have on the postsecondary experiences and outcomes for sophomores.

More than half of the students in a new study of first-generation college students were also immigrants or the children of immigrants. An Exploration of Intersecting Identities of First-Generation, Low-Income Students documents the struggle these students experience in negotiating the demands of family, community, college, peers, and work and highlights their strategies for succeeding in college.

"Welcoming Blue-Collar Scholars Into the Ivory Tower should be required reading for everyone working with college students. Contextualizing issues of first-generation students within the complexities of social class helps us all do better work by identifying issues that are personal and those that are part of the campus system."—Will Barratt, Lotus Delta Coffman Distinguished Professor, Indiana State University
