Dr. Anderson’s latest volume moves beyond the focus on retention and graduation alone, to the holistic success of our students in reaching their fullest potential throughout their lifespan. These chapters call out multiple campus stakeholders, as well as practitioners, to serve as partners and collaborators in setting the conditions for health, well-being, and our ultimate goal: student success. This volume also sets a high priority in moving ideas to impacts more quickly, a critical factor in today’s tight fiscal environments.
