THE YOUNG ADULT--A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK. SUMMARY.
CHICKERING, ARTHUR W.
THE DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE SPANNING THE YEARS FROM 18 TO 25 MUST BE STUDIED SEPARATELY FROM OTHER DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES. THE DEVELOPMENTAL TASKS OF THIS PERIOD ARE RELATED TO, BUT SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT FROM, THOSE OF BOTH ADOLESCENCE AND ADULTHOOD. THE SEVEN MAJOR DEVELOPMENTAL VECTORS FOR THE YOUNG ADULT INCLUDE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPETENCE, MANAGEMENT OF EMOTIONS, DEVELOPMENT OF AUTONOMY, DEVELOPMENT OF IDENTITY, FREEING OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS, AND DEVELOPMENT OF PURPOSE AND INTEGRITY. BECAUSE UNIVERSAL HIGHER EDUCATION IS BECOMING A REALITY, COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES MUST BROADEN THEIR PURPOSE TO INCLUDE NOT ONLY INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT BUT ALSO DEVELOPMENT OF THE YOUNG ADULT IN RELATION TO THE VECTORS OUTLINED ABOVE.
