This volume includes 35 essays on such topics as conceptual models of well-being, its significance for academic policy and practice, its connections to democratic education, the needs of nontraditional and historically underrepresented students, and more.

Civic Engagement, Civic Development, and Higher Education

Civic Engagement, Civic Development, and Higher Educationprovides perspectives of institutional leaders who are inspired rather than discouraged by the present challenges of civic renewal and higher education. The authors are drawn from all sectors of higher education. Some consider initiatives which enhance educational excellence at the institutional level, where others emphasize their work with faculty members, curricula, or communities.
